Walla Walla Campus
WWCC Counseling provides assistance with emotional, psychological, social, and behavioral factors that impact your academic success at WWCC. Our goal is to assist a diverse population of learners to create and accomplish personal, educational, and career goals in an environment that fosters each student’s potential. Counseling services are free of charge.
We offer short-term, individual counseling, (approximately 6 sessions) or brief, therapeutic check-in appointments for students already engaged in counseling services in the community. If you require services that are outside the scope of assistance provided by our department and/or involve long-term, intensive, specialized, care or hospitalization you may be referred to an appropriate mental health provider in the community.
Counselors hold master’s degrees in a behavioral health field and are credentialed through the Washington State Department of Health.
The Counseling Service has a Canvas course called “Warrior Wellness” to provide resource information, educational, and self-help materials to students, faculty, and staff. You can self-enroll in the course by clicking on this link: https://wwcc.instructure.com/enroll/TFMY93
Walla Walla Counseling Services are currently provided using telemental health. Telemental health is the practice of delivering mental health services using several electronic, often internet-based, technology tools (i.e. Zoom for videoconferencing). Services are provided with the counselor and student being in two separate locations in the state of Washington.
Licensure restrictions prohibit WWCC Counselors to provide telemental health services to any student that is not physically located in Washington at the time of the service. For those students, that are not located in Washington, please contact Caley Moyer or Paris Davis for information regarding resources and referrals to providers in your area.
To schedule an appointment please contact Caley Moyer or Paris Davis directly. Our business hours are Monday-Friday 8:30am-4:30pm during fall, winter, and spring quarters.
If you are concerned about your mental health safety, call the Walla Walla County Crisis Response Unit at 509-524-2999. Any emergent medical needs or concerns should be directed to your healthcare provider or emergency services (911).
