 How Counseling Services Can Help

Counseling Services provides confidential, one-on-one meetings for students who are currently enrolled in at least three credits at NWTC or pursuing a GED Credential.

  • Sessions are typically scheduled weekly, until the issue is resolved.
  • There is no limit to the number of sessions a student can schedule; however, if progress is not being made, a referral may be suggested to a more specialized provider in the community.
  • Ongoing counseling is scheduled at a time that is convenient for the student, with both day and evening hours available.
  • There is no cost to the student and it is confidential.
  • All counselors at NWTC have many years of experience counseling. Most are licensed by the State of Wisconsin as professional counselors (LPC) and hold either a master's or a doctorate degree. Counselors are knowledgeable about academic advising at NWTC and can help integrate these concerns with personal counseling.
