Mission and Purpose

DTS Counseling Services seeks to alleviate psychological suffering by helping clients cope with and navigate the challenges of daily living. Our mission is to provide mental health support services to the current students, faculty and staff of Dallas Theological Seminary.

Our counselors work to enhance the emotional well-being of clients by providing confidential short-term individual counseling, couples counseling, and family counseling. Support groups, assessments, educational resources, wellness programming and referrals to community mental health professionals are also provided.

Some of the most common issues encountered by our clients are depression, anxiety, stress management, grief, loneliness, low self-esteem, cultural adjustments, life transitions, and difficulties with establishing and maintaining relationships. If a client has particular concerns about their spiritual life, our therapists are trained to help the client discern how spiritual matters intersect with emotional health.
