Community Referrals

Community Provider Referrals

When you seek counseling or psychiatric services at the Counseling Center, you may be referred to a community provider.

The important thing to know is that you don’t have to figure this out on your own.  Our clinical staff, in particular our case manager, can assist you with finding a counselor.  You want to have confidence in the professional you will be seeing, know the location is convenient for you, and see someone in your insurance network or someone that charges an affordable fee.  We can assist with giving you referrals to professionals who can meet your needs.

We created a searchable database comprised of therapists in the community that you can look at to help you find a therapist that meets your needs.  Please click on the community provider referral database to access it.  We also created a brochure to help you find a therapist in the community.  There is also a list of LGBT Resources for Whatcom County.   

For Private Practitioners

The Counseling Center maintains a database of off-campus mental health professionals, information regarding their practices, and their areas of therapeutic specialty.  This allows us to refer students to appropriate off-campus resources when their needs are beyond our on-campus services.  If you would like to be included in our referral database, or if you would like to update information about your practice, please contact our office.
