Welcome to Hope College Counseling & Psychological Services


The Counseling and Psychological Services exists, along with other departments and programs on campus, to help you attain holistic (physical, emotional, and spiritual) health.

The relationship between you (the student) and your counselor is a confidential partnership. Our function, as professionals, is to listen, understand, and be helpful to the fullest extent of our training. It is your responsibility to help us understand your life situation, physical and emotional concerns, and feelings. We offer professionally trained staff who provide counseling with clinical excellence and Christian integrity.

Counseling is available free of charge to all Degree Seeking students at Hope College.
