Life Counseling

Counseling Services

Our goal is to provide a supportive and confidential environment for addressing issues and concerns that are important to students. These services are designed to help students understand themselves better, strengthen their coping skills, foster healthy relationships, and improve their academic performance and community engagement. Common issues in counseling include:

  • Stress and Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Adjustment to college
  • Academic motivation
  • Relationship difficulties
  • Grief and Loss

Make an Appointment

A student at Warner Pacific may pick up a blue form called a “Request for Counseling Services” from the Caldwell Counseling Center or from the Student Affairs Office. After a student completes this confidential form, the student submits it to the Director of the Counseling Center. The Director will then assign a graduate therapist to the student typically within two days. The therapist will contact the student directly to schedule an initial appointment.


If a student is experiencing a mental health emergency, the Director of the Counseling Center may be contacted at 503.517.1119. The Multnomah County Crisis Line may also be contacted for crisis support and evaluation services at 503.988.4888.

About the Caldwell Counseling Center

The Center also operates as a training facility. Each academic year, graduate therapists pursuing advanced degrees in counseling and clinical psychology train at the center. To ensure quality mental health services, they receive ongoing supervision and training from a licensed clinical psychologist.
