The mission of the California Baptist University Counseling Center is to provide professionally
competent and personally compassionate care for the individuals, couples, and families
who come to us for counseling services. Our heart is to provide these services with
a Christ-centered approach and biblically-focused worldview.
Further, we are dedicated to facilitating the healing of emotional distress and promoting personal growth and development of individuals, marriages, and families.
We are also committed to being an education and training resource, first to the California Baptist University Marriage and Family Therapy (M.F.T.) Graduate Program and to the community by providing interested churches, schools, and groups with speakers, seminars, and training programs.
Counseling Center Director: Jeff Biddle, LMFT
The Counseling Center serves a two-fold purpose: to provide counseling services to
the California Baptist University community, and to provide supervision and training
to practicum students in the Counseling Psychology graduate program.
The college years are a time of growth and transition during which students are confronted with many questions about self, religious faith, relationships, and future plans. The Counseling Center exists to assist students in achieving their personal, social, spiritual, academic, and career goals through professional, confidential services including individual and group counseling, workshops, behavioral self-help, referrals, and crises intervention.
Connecting with the Counseling Center
The Counseling Center recently hosted an Eating Disorder Awareness event on campus. Although this year's event has passed, it's not too late to learn about eating disorders and connect with the Counseling Center. You can complete an anonymous online screening or check out our Student Resources to learn about eating disorder symptoms and treatment. You can request an appointment here or call the Counseling Center at 951.689.1120 to make an appointment.
