Welcome to the Whitworth Counseling Center. The center is here to help you make the most of your Whitworth experience. We invite you to make an appointment to meet with one of our counselors to discuss your concerns. We hope we can be of assistance to you so that you may accomplish all you set out to do here at Whitworth.
Any student with a concern they would like to discuss is welcome. For example, students come to the counseling center with concerns about their relationships, health, happiness, motivation, behaviors, stress, trauma or life decisions. Meeting with a counselor is a chance to explore one's hopes and fears and to determine possible courses of action or resolution in a respectful and confidential setting.
The counseling center provides mental health treatment for students using a short-term counseling model. In addition to individual and couples counseling, we provide consultation, referrals to private care, crisis intervention, workshops, and group counseling to help students gain the skills and insights they need to overcome adversity and thrive in their lives and learning.
