Students in degree programs may request to receive up to 20 sessions of counseling and/or spiritual direction during their tenure at the Seminary. The counseling can be individual, couple, or family counseling as would best benefit the student, and fees will be set based on the student’s available financial resources. If a student qualifies for counseling or spiritual direction, based on a record of demonstrated financial need, he or she may receive additional financial assistance.

Students may consult the resources page of the Center for Care, Formation, and Vitality (CCFV) to find a counselor or spiritual director. For help in identifying someone who may be a good match, students are encouraged to contact the Director of CCFV, Rev. Dr. Phaedra Blocker, at
