Start or resume counseling during the summer

Start or resume counseling during the school year
Current WSU Pullman students who are considering individual or group counseling, or want to consult with a counselor for any reason, can come in to Counseling and Psychological Services during our walk-in hours.
The walk-in system is on a “first-come, first-serve” basis depending on need. You may have to wait if there are students ahead of you. We suggest you come in at least 15 minutes early to complete required paperwork. Then you will consult with a counselor to determine how best we can help meet your needs. Consultations are generally around 20-50 minutes long.
After this initial session, you may be assigned to a counselor for individual services, assigned to a group for group therapy, referred to another service, or placed on a waiting list for counseling services.
Our local community also offers a variety of options for off-campus psychological services. If you’re seeking resources outside WSU in Pullman and the Palouse region, consult our list of Private Practice and Community Referral Resources.
WSU Pullman students can participate in counseling for couples or marriage counseling. Students who have paid the current Student Health Fee are eligible for couples counseling with their partners.
Both partners must come to WSU Counseling and Psychological Services during walk-in hours to meet with counselors individually prior to starting couples counseling. Prior to meeting with a counselor, each partner will complete the initial intake questionnaires and consent for counseling forms. Once paperwork is completed, each member of the couple will meet individually with a counselor for a screening interview. This will allow the counselor to determine what services are the best fit for the couple’s needs. After the screening interviews, the counselor will contact the couple and let them know if they will be scheduled for couples counseling or referred for another type of service.
Please note that openings for couples counseling services may be limited depending on counselor availability.
