We strive to remain somewhat balanced in our approach to providing services to the community. We provide general services in:

Individual Counseling

We provide individual counseling to the community at low or no cost at Shippen Hall in suite 110. Call Growing Edges to schedule an appointment.

Family, Couples, and Group Counseling

We facilitate group counseling at Shippen Hall in our group room, 110G.

We provide couples and family counseling free of charge at Shippensburg University and at the Dixon Center in Harrisburg. On campus, group sessions are co-facilitated by counseling students and faculty. At the Dixon Center the clients are seen by students in our post masters in couples and family therapy courses.

Grief/Loss Support Groups

In our Spiritual Wellness facility here on Shippensburg University campus, we facilitate support groups for children, adolescents and adults who are grieving a significant loss. The groups are co-facilitated by students in Dr. Shirley Hess's Grief and Loss course and primarily meet in the evening. This project is titled "Drew's Hope" and is a result of our partnership with the Drew Michael Taylor Foundation.


Do you know individuals, families, or groups in our community who could benefit from receiving no or low fee counseling services?

Please e-mail Growing Edges at and request a referral form. Referral forms can then be e-mailed back or faxed to our confidential fax machine at (717) 477-4078. After we receive the referral form, a student counselor will be in contact with the referred individual(s) to set up an appointment.
