Counseling Information

Counseling Resources – Phone: 847-317-4067 | Email: [email protected] | Website: Counseling Information >>
The Counseling Department at TEDS recognizes that counseling- partnering with another in intentional dialogue to achieve change– can be an enriching and healing process. Whether it is an acute mental health concern, a relational rupture, a recalcitrant habit, a yearning to position self for formation in Christ, or the launch into a new phase of one’s career or development; a therapist may be of assistance.
At TEDS, we believe that the ministry of counseling is a key resource for our students, staff, and their families as they encounter challenges and grow in their walk with Christ. This database exists to provide our community with access to mental health counselors in our area who share our values, our Christian outlook, and who have expressed openness to working with the TEDS family.

DISCLAIMER: The counseling department cannot make a specific recommendation or endorse a partner to provide mental health or spiritual care. The counselors listed on this database are not directly affiliated with Trinity International University. This directory of community practitioners is provided for convenience and informational use only. Users are responsible for evaluating and selecting their own health care providers, as well as responsible for all costs associated with care. Carefully review insurance benefits and confirm the provider accepts your insurance plan before receiving care.
