When Should You See a Counselor?

  • When you feel like you need support in coping with a personal problem.

How We Can Help

Counseling Services provides confidential, one-on-one meetings for students who are enrolled in at least 3 credits per semester.  

  • Sessions are typically scheduled weekly, until the issue is resolved.
  • Ongoing counseling is scheduled at a time that is convenient for the student, with both day and evening hours available.
  • There is no cost to the student and it is confidential.
  • All full time counselors at NWTC have many years of experience counseling. All are licensed by the State of Wisconsin as professional counselors (LPC) and have at least a masters degree.  Occasionally, NWTC Counseling Services will serve as a training site for students completing their masters degree and/or licensure requirements to become a counselor.  You will be informed whenever a trainee is either observing or providing treatment and you have the right to specify a provider of your choice.
