Counseling Services

Counselors assist with concerns that arise while you are a currently enrolled student at WSU Vancouver. There is no charge. Our counselors (mental health therapists) have experience with anxiety, depression, relationship problems, trauma-related concerns, academic performance and many other concerns.

Services include long-term group counseling, brief and focused individual counseling, workshops, crisis and consultation services, and referrals to other campus services and community resources that can offer more specialized or longer assistance.

Counseling Services reserves 30-minute appointments for time-sensitive or urgent concerns each day. You are welcome to use these appointments as often as needed.

Contact 360-546-9238 or van.counseling@wsu.edu for more information.
