Connecting With a Counselor
Although in-person sessions are temporarily suspended due to Covid-19, the Counseling Center is available for remote services. We can be reached by phone at 360-650-3164 from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., and our after-hours crisis support is available at all other times by calling 360-650-3164 and pressing “1.”
Students choosing our Guided Pathway may connect with a counselor for a phone consultation to talk about support and resources. These are rapid-access, same-day sessions with our counselors. Phone consultations serve as a stand-alone support session, and students are welcome to utilize multiple phone consultations as needed.
During your session, you and your consultation counselor may decide that certain Independent Pathway resources could help you with your concerns. This could include using mental health apps, meeting with Prevention & Wellness Services staff, signing up for a Counseling Center workshop, or connecting with a different university office. Your consultation counselor will explain how to access and utilize those resources.
You and your consultation counselor may also decide that other Guided Pathway services would be a good fit for your concerns. This may include intensive group therapy*, intensive individual therapy*, or a case management meeting to arrange off-campus services for more intensive or specialized support.
*Due to state licensure laws, we can only provide intensive group therapy and intensive individual therapy to students currently located in Washington State.
