The Wellness Counseling department supports the whole person by cultivating and nurturing relationships. We seek to understand the interconnected aspects that contribute to a person's wellbeing and their ability to maintain a balanced life. Wellness counselors meet each student where they are, non-judgmentally, with unconditional positive regard, and strive to contribute to their sense of being known and loved at Priory.
Wellness counselors understand that personal development is a non-linear growth process that will extend beyond a student’s time at Priory. Our approach is human-centered, empathetic, and compassionate. We are honored to hold this space with each student.
