We help shape the next generation of mental health practitioners.

The faculty in the Graduate School of Professional Psychology is dedicated to the training, education, and professional development of practitioner-scholars who, as lifelong learners, make ethical, professional, and creative contributions to their communities and their respective professional disciplines (i.e., Counseling Psychology; Professional Counseling; Marriage and Family Therapy; Addiction Counseling). Multiple perspectives are infused throughout the programs to develop a student’s self-reflection and critical thinking in order to effectively and competently serve the needs of a diversity of communities.

Given that there exists a relationship between professional competency and personal development, every student is supported by the faculty a in developing their own Personal Characteristics as defined by the Graduate School of Professional Psychology.

M. A. in Counseling Psychology

Benefits of a client-centered education.

"Oftentimes in my practice I find myself feeling grateful for the ethical, client-centered education I received at St. Thomas. I remember being coached to embrace ambiguity; indeed in counseling there is a lot “gray.” My educational experience gives me confidence that I will know how to behave in a way that has my client’s best interest at its core."
