Counseling Services

We offer confidential counseling services (Personal Counseling, Academic Skill Building, and ADHD Assessments) to currently enrolled UWL students.

PERSONAL COUNSELING or ACADEMIC SKILL BUILDING
There is no fee for Personal Counseling or Academic Skill Building appointments. To get started, call or stop in to make an appointment (first appointment is 20-30 minutes for personal counseling or 45-50 minutes for academic skill building).

YOUR FIRST APPOINTMENT
At your first appointment, we ask that you come in 20-30 minutes before your scheduled time to review and complete forms.  These forms must be completed before meeting with the counselor, and will help your counselor understand your concerns and will help you understand the counseling process. 

The counselor at this appointment will discuss your situation and determine what counseling service(s) could be most helpful.  Continued services include individual and group options.

To cancel or reschedule an appointment, just call or stop in at least 24 hours before your appointment.  Also, you can review or cancel a scheduled appointment at our confidential and secure UWL MyHealth site (first time users will need to set up an account).

Reasons why students seek Personal Counseling or Academic Skill Building:  

  • Personal Counseling:  to get help with resolving conflicts, solving problems, handling crisis situations, making decisions, understanding self, understanding others, and developing better coping skills.  They also come in to address concerns about their own or a friend's alcohol or drug use, eating disorders, depression, anxiety, suicidal thoughts and so much more.
  • Academic Skill Building: for assistance with note taking, studying, test preparation, managing test anxiety, test taking skills, vocabulary.  Check out our Academic Skill Building page.
