Welcome to Counseling Services

The staff of Counseling Services is skilled in providing short-term counseling services for students experiencing a range of concerns such as stress management, anxiety, depression, problem solving, relational concerns, personal development and adjustment, values clarification, and family conflict, among others.

Because the center provides short-term counseling services, other counseling options may include a referral to off-campus counseling resources as needed. And don't forget to visit our Mind Spa for a quick break from your studies.


For an appointment, visit our office or call 503-370-6471. If you need an appointment urgently, please let the front desk know you are requesting an immediate appointment.

All counseling appointments in Counseling Services are free of charge.  This includes intake appointments, follow-ups, walk-ins, and crisis appointments.  If an assessment for medication is indicated and desired, we will refer you to a local prescriber in the community.

We require 24 hour cancellation for all scheduled appointments in Counseling Services. A $25 No Show Fee will be assessed and billed to your student account for any missed appointments.

Importantly, Bishop Wellness Center does not provide "notes" for absences from class.  If you unable to attend class, please communicate with your professor to make up any missed work as your earliest convenience.

All discussion with the counselor is strictly confidential.
