Counseling Services

Welcome to WSU Spokane Counseling Services. Our office is here to provide a safe environment to help students explore the challenges of life and learning through counseling. WSU Spokane Counseling Services also provides consultation to faculty, staff, and parents who have concerns about a student. Payment of the student health fee covers our services, so there is no additional cost.
