Personal counseling is available to help you seek out professional help, when dealing with your problems on your own is just too much. The counseling office is staffed by licensed professional counselors who are sensitive to the many issues affecting college students today. Our counseling works from a short-term treatment model. If it appears that you need or want long-term therapy, a referral will be made to the appropriate community resource.
Counselors and clients work together to create counseling plans that offer a reasonable promise of success and are consistent with the abilities and circumstances of the client, and are free to CWC students.

Student of Concern and Student in Crisis - Making a Referral
Are you concerned about a student and want to do something about it? There is a team of staff members on campus that you can make an official referral to for action that WILL take place to attempt to help the student.
All counseling sessions are kept strictly confidential. In fact, no one else on campus knows who is seeing a counselor, unless an emergency exists (details can be discussed with the counselor). Counselors are required to have your signed consent in order to share ANY of your personal information with your family, instructors or other professionals. Sometimes it is good to include faculty, staff, or family members in your recovery, but that decision will always be your own.
Personal counseling relationships are professional and contacts between client and counselor are expected to be of a professional nature. Sexual intimacies between client and counselor are never appropriate. You have the right to ask questions about your counselor's credentials and approach. You may also accept or reject any suggested counseling interventions. You may ask to meet with a different counselor. You have the right to report any complaint you may have about counseling services to the vice president of student affairs.
