We all can experience personal problems that lead us to feel confused, anxious, overwhelmed, sad, and/or depressed. Counseling and Wellness Services (CWS) is here to help. We offer a warm, relaxed and confidential place to talk things out. Often you may find that there are not simple answers to your problems, however talking to a therapist can result in finding new ways to look at problems as well as identifying suggestions and possible solutions. Often, just talking with someone who asks the right questions is all that is necessary to relieve stress and find answers.Therapy and/or psychological assessment are available to Wright State University students. Therapy is offered in group, individual, couples, and/or family modalities. Some examples of problems that may seen by our staff:

Counseling and Wellness Services is staffed by Licensed Psychologists and Counselors, Psychiatrist, and psychology interns and doctoral level trainees. Following an initial interview, or intake session, a treatment plan is recommended that considers client goals and CWS services. Clients are then assigned to a therapist with preferences for therapist gender/race being honored whenever possible. All training therapists are required to audio or videotape their sessions. The tapes are used solely to assist the therapist in his/her training while under the supervision of a Licensed Psychologist.
