Counseling & Career Planning

Personal Counseling

Life gets complicated and stressful for everyone at times . . . but it doesn't have to disrupt your academic performance. Our Licensed Professional Counselors are on hand Monday through Friday to provide support and counseling through these difficult times so you can continue to succeed in your classes. All sessions are private and confidential.

Please call (734) 677-5102 to make an appointment or stop in in person. We're located on the 2nd floor of the Student Services Building. See Counseling Department hours to the left.

For students beginning the counseling process, here are some documents to help you get started.

WCC CAP (a pilot campus assistance program) is now live and available to all currently enrolled students. Partnering with a nationally recognized and accredited health care provider, CAP offers additional mental health services that will complement the College's face-to-face personal counseling services. This is a clinical service available 7 days/week, 365 days/year which includes diagnostic assessment plus up to 3 face-to-face or telephone short-term problem resolution sessions. Our CAP program does not take the place of our current personal counseling services. Any currently enrolled WCC student can use this mental health service. Call toll free anytime at 1-866-227-3834 7 days/week, 365 days/year.

Half of Us is a great resource to find ways to take control of your emotional health; to use an anonymous screening tool to check your emotional health; to learn how to help a friend because you’re worried about him or her; and to get connected to get help for yourself or a friend.
