Pastoral Counseling

The college chaplains remain available to all members of the college community - those of any faith tradition, or none at all - to offer confidential spiritual direction and pastoral counseling. They also can assist individuals in determining whether additional counseling with a clinically trained therapist might be helpful.

Schedule an Appointment

To schedule a counseling appointment with a chaplain, call the office at 704-894-2423 or email the chaplain directly.

 The office is located next to the elevator on the 4th floor of the Alvarez College Union.
