Consultation Services

Our experienced team of licensed psychologists and mental health counselors provide consultation with those concerned about PLU students.  We are open to speaking with parents, friends, staff, and faculty about a range of issues, including:

  • strategies for helping a student connect with the Counseling Center or other on-campus support;
  • concerns about a particular student who might be experiencing emotional distress or struggling with mental health struggles;
  • concerns about the impact of an individual’s distressing behaviors on others;
  • referrals to community mental health providers and services.

Please understand that all information about our clients is completely confidential (we are unable to acknowledge if a student is a client within our office).  However, we may still be able to provide general information about how to understand, provide assistance, or get help for the person or situation you describe.  And confidentiality does not limit what you can tell us.

To speak to a counselor for a consultation on non-urgent issues, please call (253) 535-7206, option 2, during regular business hours (Mon-Fri, 8:00am-12:00pm and 1:00pm to 5:00pm).  Our counselor on consult is available Mon-Fri, 10:00-11:00am, on a first-come, first-serve basis.  A message may be left outside of this designated time, and requests for consultation are returned within one business day.

If you need a consult on an urgent situation, please seek consultation from our PLU Crisis Line (253) 535-7075 for immediate support.
