Charleston Southern University's Counseling Services offers professional mental health services in the form of personal counseling from a faith-informed, multi-cultural perspective. Our counselors are familiar with using non-faith-based approaches if that is preferred, along with Biblical or integrative approaches (Christian theology and psychology).  Our goal is always to work with students in a collaborative, goal-oriented counseling approach.
