Here to serve

Wenatchee Valley College Counselors are prepared to work with you whether you are experiencing an academic difficulty, a personal issue or any other situation you may need guidance in. 

Counselors provide a range of services that are free and confidential for WVC students

  • Academic Counseling
  • Re-admission petitions 
  • Personal Counseling
  • Crisis intervention
  • Problem solving strategies
  • Career Counseling

What kind of counseling is available?

The professional Counselors in the counseling center are here to help you by offering a safe, confidential place where you can explore your concerns and discover new strength, insights and ways of coping. 

Short-term (three to five sessions), free, confidential counseling is available for WVC students in the following areas:

Academic counseling is for students who have concerns about classes, class work or academic performance.

For students who have been suspended or dismissed. Complete the Readmission petition and submit your form here.

Career Counseling is an important step in your academic journey. Career Counseling can be useful for everyone. Are you wondering what to major in or what career would be right for you? Career Counseling offers insight into your career options. Choosing the right career is an exciting, but sometimes daunting, project. It is a process of exploration, first about you -- what you love to do, what you do best, what is important to you -- and then about finding how you can use your unique talents to benefit others and make a difference in the world. For help in this process, book an appointment to see a Counselor or check out the Career assesments page:  Career Assessment and Planning

College is challenging and sometimes stressful. One of the challenges is maintaining a healthy balance in your personal and academic life. At times you may need assistance with this so that you can reach your academic goals. Schedule a personal counseling appointment with a counselor that can help you navigate challenging situations and provide you with tools to assist you in regaining a healthy balance. 


During the initial visit students and their counselor will work together to define important issues and mutually agreed-upon goals. The counselor will talk to students about how the college or community is best able to provide the kind of assistance needed. WVC's counseling service is designed to primarily support short-term counseling needs. Most students are seen for a few sessions over the quarter. If you wish to continue counseling, or if our counseling center is unable to provide the type of service you need or request, we will refer you to an appropriate outside agency.
