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.
- There is no limit to the number of sessions a student can schedule, however if progress is not being made, a referral may be suggested to a more specialized provider in the community.
- 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 counselors at NWTC have many years of experience counseling. All are licensed by the State of Wisconsin as professional counselors (LPC) and hold either a master's or a doctorate degree. Counselors are knowledgeable about academic advising at NWTC and can help integrate these concerns with personal counseling.
