What to expect
In scheduling the appointment, you will be asked if you are a currently enrolled WSU Vancouver student, if you have previously used our services, and whether your concerns are urgent or if you can wait a few days before a first appointment.
If your concerns do not require an immediate appointment, you will be scheduled for an initial assessment, usually within one to two weeks. If your concerns are urgent or worsen while you are awaiting your first appointment, you may call and request a same-day urgent appointment. Please arrive 30 minutes early to your first appointment to complete paperwork electronically at our office.
Please review the following documents in advance:
The purpose of your initial assessment is to get a broad understanding of your concerns. This appointment typically lasts 45 – 50 minutes. Your counselor will work with you individually to determine the goals, duration and best methods of counseling, including whether your needs could be best met by an off-campus provider.
