Individual counseling is available to currently enrolled WWU students. Individual sessions are offered on a short-term basis that is often adequate to address concerns commonly faced by college students. Issues addressed in brief therapy include, but are not limited to, loneliness and homesickness, anxiety, depression, academic stress, low self-esteem, relationship problems, academic challenges, and identity issues.
The WWU Counseling Center is able to offer brief couples counseling to students when both parties are currently enrolled, pending counselor availability. Brief couples counseling can help the parties of a relationship clarify and address interpersonal difficulties, improve communication skills, and improve how they relate to one another. If you are interested in couples counseling, you and your partner must both call the Counseling Center to schedule an individual assessment during which you will inform the assessing therapist that you are interested in couples counseling.
