One Thing to Know: Feeling stressed? Counseling Services can help

It may be the most wonderful time of the year, but for many it’s also the most stressful. After all, it’s the last full week of the semester (i.e., crunch time), we’re experiencing frigid, single-digit temperatures, and the holidays are this close.

If you’re also dealing with the loss of a job, grieving a loved one, facing serious health concerns, or struggling with parenting or other family issues, this time of year could be especially hard. I get it – it’s hard to be jolly when you’re going through tough times.

Are you experiencing any of the above situations? If so, you are not alone. That’s why NWTC’s Counseling Services exists – to help students like you who are feeling stressed, anxious, or depressed.

There’s one awesome thing to know about Counseling Services: Assistance is available at no cost to NWTC students.

I recently talked to Dr. John Teske, a psychologist and licensed professional counselor at NWTC. He followed up his “one thing to know” about Counseling Services with a few additional facts. Counseling at NWTC is…
  • Completely confidential
  • Open to any student enrolled in any NWTC class or pursuing a GED credential
  • Available at all three campuses and the regional learning centers
  • Available during breaks and summer months
Licensed professional counselors Judy Roemer and Wes Johnson round out the expert staff in NWTC Counseling Services. Whether you need help coping with a personal problem, you’re feeling overwhelmed, or your grades are slipping, John, Judy, or Wes can help. Get to know the counselors.

Dr. Teske said students often turn to Counseling Services when they are trying to decide what they want to do with their lives. Are you feeling that same anxiety? (And who hasn’t? Again, you are not alone!) Contact Counseling Services today.

NWTC Counseling Services is located in Room SC231 in the Student Center on the Green Bay campus (download a campus map). Office hours are Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. (evening appointments available upon request). Learn more about NWTC Counseling Services.
