Counseling Center



The hatred and violence in Charlottesville, combined with the profound weight of the day-to-day oppression that many members of our community experience, can have an enormous impact on mental health. This is a time to take care of ourselves and each other. The Counseling Center is here to support you. Please reach out if you need to talk, either on a one-time basis or for more ongoing support.

Our staff of psychologists and mental health counselors is available to provide culturally-responsive short-term counseling to students, as well as serving as a consultation and outreach resource for the entire UW community.  All UW Seattle students who are in degree-seeking programs are eligible for our counseling services.
