Counseling

Licensed mental health professionals are available to assist all students with any personal issues that may prevent educational success and or personal wellbeing. Counseling Services are provided in a confidential, positive and supportive environment where students feel free to voice their thoughts, feelings, ideas, and become empowered to pursue their personal and educational goals.  Individual, couple (both of whom must be students enrolled at Western), and group counseling are available to all credit pursuing  students.

Crisis intervention services are offered during regular office hours for students with urgent problems.  Please call or come in and inform our office assistant that you have an urgent crisis. Mental health professionals can also be reached after hours for crises.   For after hours contact:
