Counseling Services
Professional Guidance for Personal Work

Counseling Services provides short-term individual and group counseling for all eligible WMU students. Counseling is provided by licensed mental health professionals and supervised graduate student trainees.

To best meet the needs of as many students as possible, a short-term counseling model has been established. Services are individualized based on your personal needs and the number of visits varies (typically 6 to 8 sessions) from student to student. Some students may need to see a counselor just one or two times and others may need to see a counselor for a longer period of time. The student and the counselor will work together to develop a treatment plan that will best meet the student’s needs based on the nature of the presenting concerns.

Those students who may need longer term services may receive assistance in a referral to other university and community agencies.
