University Counseling


Oklahoma Baptist University, as a Christian liberal arts university, transforms lives by equipping students to pursue academic excellence, integrate faith with all areas of knowledge, engage a diverse world, and live worthy of the high calling of God in Christ. OBU is committed to the development of the whole person, who under the sovereignty of God is a person of intellectual, spiritual, social, psychological, and physical dimensions. OBU endeavors to approach students from these perspectives and to provide the atmosphere, opportunities, and resources for students to know wholeness within the context of a community of learners.

In support of this mission, the OBU University Counseling office is staffed by Licensed Marital and Family Therapists and MFT therapy interns to assist students with personal counseling. In addition to on-campus services, limited off-campus services are available through community service providers by referral of the Director of Counseling Services. Any unanswered questions may be referred to the Director of Counseling Services, or 405.585.5260.

Our Mission

The overarching clinical goal of the University Counseling program is to assist students, faculty and staff in finding positive solutions for their personal and relational difficulties so that they can continue as fully functioning members of the Oklahoma Baptist University community.
