To schedule an appointment with a licensed therapist at the Walter Young Center, email (or call the WYC front desk at 262-524-7335). You can provide your name and let them know you'd like to schedule an appointment with a counselor. If you have preferred times, or a therapist you would prefer to work with, you can provide this information in your email as well. If you do not have a confidential space to complete your session, let us know and we will work to accommodate this.


Regular Business hours during the academic year are Monday - Friday, 8:00-4:30pm.

New Location! As of Monday 8/16, the Walter Young Center will be located at the Center for Student Life and Wellness, at 304 N. East Avenue. We are on the 2nd floor - if your initial appointment is in person, please check-in at the front desk on the main floor.



We provide short-term solution-focused counseling, helping students to gain insight and learn healthier ways of coping with challenges. We offer individual counseling, group counseling, and crisis intervention services during our business hours. We also provide referrals to community providers if longer-term counseling is needed. During your initial appointment, your therapist will help you develop a plan of action that best fits your situation.
