What is counseling?
Counseling is a confidential, professional relationship that empowers students to accomplish mental health, wellness, education, and career goals by overcoming personal obstacles.
College can be stressful and almost all students experience occasional difficulties that can throw them off track. Montana Western’s licensed counselors are non-judgmental, skilled listeners who help you clarify your own thoughts and feelings, gain insight into your behavior, and develop a plan to reach your goals.
Montana Western takes a progressive approach as more and more UMW students recognize the value of having their own counselor with which to troubleshoot problems. Typical problems include anxiety, depression, relationships, eating disorders, homesickness, sexual/gender identity concerns, sexual trauma, sleep difficulties, career choices, etc.
