Christian Counseling

We help students stay healthy so they can reach their potential, personally and academically. In Christian Ministries, we help students develop a Biblical worldview by learning to love God and others, as themselves.

Student Counseling Services

Individual Counseling

Our counselors and graduate interns will meet with you for assessment and short-term counseling (6-12 sessions)

Brief Consultations

Our counselors and graduate interns will assist you with any questions or concerns, regarding friends, roommates, family members, and/or college life and the adjustments, which accompany it. Nothing is a waste of time to talk through: if you are questioning or wondering, it’s important, and we want to help.

Outside Services

We will help you connect with providers outside College of the Ozarks, if desired.

Workshops and Presentations

Our counselors are available to speak to your group about mental health issues, and building healthy boundaries, and relationships. Look for “How to Avoid Marrying a Jerk/Jerkette,” “Boundaries in the Making,” “Pre-Marital Retreat: Starting Out Equipped,” and Personality Profile Workshops, starring the typology inventories everyone talks about on campus.

Relationship Coaching

With the right tools, we can help you succeed relationally: from friendship to marital counseling, our trained marriage family therapists will help guide you toward your relational dreams.


We are here to help. Please contact us at (417) 690-2296 or The Student Counseling Center is located at the Christian Ministries building.
