Counseling Services

Counseling Services is offering personal, mental health counseling remotely to currently enrolled students. Telecounseling is via (a secure videoconference platform) and Therapy Notes is our Electronic Health Records System. Students can request appointments below.

Request an Appointment

You can talk with a Counselor without making an appointment by using the Drop-In hour.

Drop-In is available on a first come first serve basis:
Monday through Friday from 11:30 am - 12:50 pm.

Please check in for the Drop-In as early as possible as there is a small amount of paperwork that will need to be completed before you meet with your Counselor.

If you would like to talk with a Counselor during Drop-In ​Hours click on this link Drop-In Waiting Room.

If you click on the Drop-In Waiting Room link outside of the Drop-In hour, a Counselor will not be available. Please note that the Drop-in Waiting Room is only monitored from 11:30 am - 1:00 pm. Outside of these hours, please call or email CS to schedule an appointment.

If you click on this link during the Drop-In hour, and do not receive a response from a Counselor within 5 minutes, they are likely already meeting with another student. Please call or email CS to schedule an appointment and we will return your call as soon as possible.

If you are in crisis, please call the King County 24/hour crisis line at (866) 427-4747 or contact the Crisis Text Line by texting "HOME" to 741-741. In an emergency, please call 911 or go to the nearest hospital.

Serving Green River Students

Counseling Services provides short-term mental health counseling and self-care/wellness education to Green River students. Workshops and consultation services are offered for staff, faculty, and student organizations. Services are free and confidential.

Professional mental health counselors support students by helping them explore emotional concerns, develop new awareness and skills, and mobilize their existing strengths, qualities and abilities. While some people who seek counseling have chronic emotional difficulties, most are dealing with normal life events and are simply in need of an objective listener - someone who doesn't judge and who can help them see new alternatives.

Make an Appointment

Counseling is a collaborative effort between the student and their counselor. Our goal is to provide an open, supportive, and confidential environment for the student to address problems

To schedule an appointment Please note: Wait times vary depending on when in the quarter a student is seeking services. Typical wait time is 7-10 days for an intake (first) appointment.

Email: Please include days and times that would work for an intake (75min) appointment.
