Psychological and Educational Testing
The human brain is the most complex organ in all of creation. Hope is often undermined by genuine brain functioning problems such as ADHD, Major Depressive Disorder and Bipolar Disorder, or anxiety disorders that go undetected. Hopewell is able to provide high quality diagnostic assessment when such brain functioning problems are suspected so that holistic treatment needs (physical, emotional and spiritual) can clearly be identified. These counseling services include educational testing to identify specific learning disorders that may be affecting academic and work performance. Testing is also available to help people identify personality traits and attachment patterns in order to improve their relationship functioning.

Sometimes individuals and couples, finding themselves in crisis, need a jump start in the healing journey. An intensive might be the right solution. An intensive is a 2-3 day long one-on-one counseling intervention, providing the equivalent of 6 months or more of direct counseling from a clinically trained Master’s level or higher Biblical Counselor. Intensives can be one of the most rewarding counseling services you experience.
Career counseling includes a wide variety of professional activities which help people deal with career-related challenges. Career counselors work with
- adolescents seeking to explore career options
- experienced professionals contemplating a career change
- parents who want to return to the world of work after taking time to raise their child
- people seeking employment
Through their counseling and teaching abilities, career counselors can additionally support people in gaining a better understanding of what really matters for them personally, how they can plan their careers autonomously, or help them in making tough decisions and getting through times of crisis.
People who participate in career counseling can benefit from the use of career assessments. Career assessments provide insightful and relatively objective information about which jobs may be suitable for the test taker based on a combination of their interests, values, and skills. Career assessments usually provide a list of recommended jobs that match the test taker’s attributes with those of people with similar personalities who enjoy and are successful at their jobs.
Your career development is a lifelong process that, whether you know it or not, actually started when you were born! There are a number of factors that influence your career development, including your interests, abilities, values, personality, background, and circumstances. Career Counseling is a process that will help you to know and understand yourself and the world of work in order to make career, educational, and life decisions.
Career development is more than just deciding on a major and what job you want to get when you graduate. It really is a lifelong process, meaning that throughout your life you will change, situations will change, and you will continually have to make career and life decisions. The goal of Career Counseling is to not only help you make the decisions you need to make now, but to give you the knowledge and skills you need to make future career and life decisions.
What can I expect from career counseling?
Your Career Counselor WILL:
- Help you figure out who you are and what you want out of your education, your career, and your life.
- Be someone for you to talk to about your thoughts, ideas, feelings, and concerns about your career and educational choices, who will help you sort out, organize, and make sense of your thoughts and feelings.
- Help you identify the factors influencing your career development, and help you assess your interests, abilities, and values.
- Help you locate resources and sources of career information.
- Help you to determine next steps and develop a plan to achieve your goals.
Your Career Counselor WON’T:
- Tell you what to do, or tell you what you should major in or what career you should pursue.
Who needs career counseling?
Since career development is a lifelong process, Career Counseling can be appropriate for anyone, including freshmen, sophomores, juniors, seniors, and even alumni. The earlier you get started making intentional decisions about your future, however, the better prepared you will be! We recommend that all freshmen come in and visit with a Career Counselor.
