Counseling services for students, faculty and staff

Currently enrolled WSU Vancouver students are eligible for mental health counseling. There is no charge for counseling services.


WSU Vancouver Counseling Services staff offers brief and focused individual, couples, and group counseling, psychological testing, workshops and outreach presentations, and crisis and consultation services. We also assist students by referring them to other services on campus and to community resources that can offer more specialized or longer-term assistance with problems and concerns.

Short-term individual counseling is offered based on a variety of factors (e.g., availability, client-therapist fit, and level of care needed for treatment). Based on these factors, WSU Vancouver Counseling Services staff will provide students with brief individual therapy services, or will provide referral resources within the community, for continued off-campus health-related services.

Short-term confidential counseling by a licensed professional counselor is available for students Monday through Friday, from 9 a.m. - 5 p.m. To schedule an appointment, call (360) 546-9238.

WSU Vancouver Counseling Services staff may provide referral resources within the community, for continued off-campus health-related services and will assist with finding a community provider through agencies in Vancouver and Longview.
