We know so many students are dealing with feelings of isolation, depression, anxiety, and many different types of stress. Our goal is to connect you to the right resources and get you the support you need. See the options below for both our on-campus and off-campus support services as well as our contact information.
Our individual wellness counseling appointments are offered by The Wright Institute trainees. The Wright Institute trainees offer brief therapy, which is free. Students may meet with a Wellness Counselor for up to ten sessions. Wellness Counseling is offered for currently enrolled DVC students Monday - Friday for appointments via Zoom or in person. These appointments are open on a space-available basis and spots are limited. We have very limited counseling spots, so at times there is a waitlist. Please use TimelyCare for more immediate support.
Wellness counseling spots are reserved for students who are not already connected with therapy outside of DVC.
If you are on campus and feeling overwhelmed, stressed, upset, or need to check in, you can come to Counseling and let the front desk staff know you want to do a "crisis drop in." We will do our best to have a wellness counselor connect with you. Location: SSC Building, 2nd Floor, Counseling Front Desk.
