COUNSELING AND SPIRITUAL DIRECTION
Dr. S. Timothy Pretz, Coordinator

tpretz@eastern.edu

Students in degree programs may request to receive up to 20 sessions of counseling and/or spiritual direction during their tenure at the Seminary. The counseling can be individual, couple, or family counseling as would best benefit the student, and fees will be set based on the student’s available financial resources. If a student qualifies for counseling or spiritual direction, based on a record of demonstrated financial need, he or she may receive additional financial assistance.
The coordinator of these services will match students with area professionals available to work with seminarians at the seminary or, if possible and desirable, close to where the student lives. The coordinator of these services and the professionals providing counseling or spiritual formation will maintain appropriate confidentiality for the students as negotiated by the student and the professional.
