WPCC provides free, confidential personal counseling and crisis counseling to students through the office of Student Services. These personal counseling services are offered on an as-needed basis for full or part-time students who may be dealing with issues such as alcohol/substance abuse, or stress at home or school that may be affecting them as individuals, or which may be affecting their academic progress. If, after initial assessment, students are found to need highly specialized or long term services, referrals can be made to appropriate service providers or resources in the community for further assistance.
To make a personal counseling appointment, contact Vicki Holder at (828) 448-3565.
