Short-Term Counseling

The Counseling Center offers individual short-term counseling to degree-seeking students enrolled at the Seattle campus. Students receiving short-term counseling will meet for an average of four to six sessions scheduled weekly, bi-weekly or monthly. While counseling experiences can vary greatly from person to person, a few topics appropriate for short-term counseling are:

  • Managing time and academic stress
  • Managing mood and thoughts
  • Relationship support
  • Navigating life transitions as well as academic and career decision-making
