Mission Statement

Look for our unique stained glass door

The Broene Counseling Center provides high quality counseling services in a confidential setting within a reformed Christian framework. We help Calvin students to reduce psychological symptoms, cope with difficult life events, and be successful in their academic and personal endeavors. We also provide consultation to faculty and staff, and training for new mental health professionals.

Who seeks help?

Every year, hundreds of Calvin students come in to the Broene Counseling Center. They come with issues such as depression, anxiety, relationship struggles, stress, eating disorders, substance abuse, and other life challenges. Statistics show that students feel understood by their counselors and are recommending others to Broene.

Eligibility and cost

Students who are currently enrolled in classes are eligible for our counseling services at no cost. While counseling is free, there will be a $15 charge for "no shows" to appointments which have not been canceled or rescheduled prior to the appointment.
