The mission of our program is to train counselors and forensic practitioners to engage with the changing complexity of human experience, to deliver services informed by evidence-based practices and ongoing self-reflection, and to practice with empathy and cultural humility. Since the founding of the Counseling Psychology master’s program at Holy Names University, the program has prioritized training practitioners through a balance of theory and professional development, so that our students undergo a transformative experience resulting in the ability to practice with flexibility, cultural competence and the skills to remain current and vital in the field.
