Saint Martin's Counseling and Wellness Services' response to COVID 19:

The Counseling and Wellness is open and serving students virtually. Please email us at counselingCWC@stmartin.edu or call 360-412-6123 and leave a message to schedule an intake if you are a new client.

If you are an existing client, you can also email your therapist directly or email the CWC to schedule, change or cancel an appointment. 

We are checking our phone messages a few times per day so email is the fastest.  The center is able to provide phone or Telehealth via Zoom (remote video therapy).

Please note: If you have returned home to an out of state location, CWC counselors may not be able to provide counseling due to the need to be licensed in the state they practice. If so, your counselor or one of the staff will assist you in locating counseling services in your area.
