Counseling & Psychological Services provides confidential mental health counseling and related services for currently enrolled UW Tacoma students at no additional costs. We also provide consultation to faculty, staff, and university student families.
It is common for students to sometimes feel overwhelmed by the responsibilities of academics, work, family, and other relationships. Counseling & Psychological Services is here to help students cope with stresses and personal issues that can interfere with their ability to perform in school.
We provide intentional, problem-focused mental health counseling, aimed at building better skills and exploring alternative ways of coping. Counseling & Psychological Services provides confidential crisis, individual, couples*, and group counseling; educational workshops and classroom presentations; consultation for students, faculty, staff, and student families; and referrals (when appropriate) to community mental health and social service providers and other UWT student services and resources.
*We are unable to provide couples counseling via teletherapy.
Black Lives Matter - Statement from Our Staff
To everyone affected by social injustices, especially the members of the Black, African, and African-American communities: We at the UWT office of Counseling and Psychological Services will continue to work against racial injustice. We realize that our anger, fear, and sadness regarding the violence of racism, both recently, and throughout history, MUST be channeled into continuing to support the UWT community and our students. Our work welcomes all experiences and feelings in response to these repeated individual and societal traumas and we will collectively work to do better in supporting you with compassion and humility. We also realize that our field has a history of being complicit in racial injustice and thus, we also will continue to work on dismantling and challenging this history both within our field, and within ourselves. We will continue to stand with you.
