Counseling Program

It is not unusual for you to experience some difficulties during your college career. Whether it is a relationship breakup, stress, depression, past trauma or even the death of a loved one, professional counseling or pastoral guidance is sometimes needed. The University of Valley Forge (UVF) is here to help.


In times of difficulty you are encouraged to contact the UVF Health and Wellness Center, which will provide referrals to qualified professional counselors through the Counseling on Campus Program. Limited funds are available to assist you with the cost of these services.


Students who have been diagnosed with a serious mental health disorder or who are seeing a mental health professional regularly are requested to inform the Director of the Health and Wellness Center so that support can be provided as necessary.


Our goal is to make sure you are supported during times of difficulty and given the resources needed to help with your physical, emotional, and spiritual health.
