For your first contact with the Counseling Center, we ask that you come into our office, located in Old Main 540, during our drop-in hours which are 10:00 am - 2:00 pm, Monday through Friday. Your initial consultation appointment is on a “first-come, first-served” basis, and any subsequent appointments after your initial consultation are scheduled appointments.
Please bring your Western ID and be prepared to spend 10-20 minutes to complete our required intake e-forms. You will then meet with a counselor to discuss your concerns and what might be helpful.
At the end of your initial consultation your counselor will suggest next steps, which may include life skills workshops, group counseling, brief individual therapy, or an off-campus referral. Please review our Informed Consent forms prior to your appointment.
If you are unsure if counseling services would be helpful, you can take a free mental health screening.
