Counseling & Wellness Center
APU offers the Counseling and Wellness Center (CWC) as a confidential and safe place for students, staff, and faculty to discuss topics such as, but not limited to, behavioral changes, emotional challenges, family dynamics, goal setting, relationship distress, academic anxiety and stress, and the transition to being a student in a challenging academic environment. The CWC adheres to the standards of confidentiality as set forth by counseling ethics and Alaska state law. Students under the age of 18 require parent or guardian permission.
Though the CWC does not offer psychiatric or nursing services, the CWC offers a variety of community referrals as requested or deemed appropriate. The CWC will offer a strengths-based environment for clients to receive counseling.
The Counseling and Wellness Center is staffed by two Masters of Science in Counseling Psychology graduate students who are supervised by a Licensed Professional Counselor. This term’s interns are available on the following schedule:
