The purpose of this chapter is to examine the integration of the existentialist counseling approach and MSJCC as it relates to the case study of Aaron. Authors review the case of Aaron, a college student, who identifies within the LDS faith, struggling with symptoms of depression and anxiety. The authors include a review of the foundation and history of the LDS church, as well as the modern structure and implications for counseling. The authors also describe their own cultural backgrounds and counseling approaches when working with Aaron. Following this review is a case conceptualization through an existential theoretical lens with the inclusion of short-term and long-term goals alongside a treatment plan.
