Counseling

The aim of counseling at Mount Union is to assist students in becoming socially and emotionally healthy. Counseling is a partnership between client and counselor, meant to help students find solutions and possibilities in life. In the Office of Counseling Services, state-licensed counselors help Mount Union students move toward life goals while teaching the coping skills needed for the future. Counseling staff members provide free and confidential counseling by appointment to enrolled students. Walk-in hours are also available as well as E-Therapy (Mount Union's audio/video encrypted communication platform, i.e Skype for Business) services for those students studying abroad and completing clinical.

All Mount Union Counseling staff members have licensed therapists through the state of Ohio CSWMFT Board. In order to facilitate consumer protection, please visit Ohio licensure verification.

The Department of Counseling Services will be providing virtual as well as live contact sessions via the Student Affairs Suite, Hoover-Price Campus Center. To schedule an appointment, call (330) 823-2886 or email counselingservices@mountunion.edu.
