We offer counseling, workshops, and website resources (on this site) designed to help veterinary and CVM graduate students develop the skills necessary to succeed throughout their programs. These services and resources include help with study, time management and test taking skills, improving learning, memory, and motivation, decreasing exam-related stress, and overcoming procrastination. Resources for thesis and dissertation writing are also provided on this website. We encourage students to seek help promptly, so that they can succeed with less stress and better grades from the start.
We offer counseling and website resources for resume writing, job search, and interviewing to ensure that veterinary and graduate students are prepared to start their job search prior to graduation.
Personal & Couples’ Counseling
Our services and website self-help resources are designed to help students to successfully manage personal issues and interpersonal and professional relationships. We invite you to contact a counselor for free, confidential individual or couples’ counseling when needed. Some students seek a single consultation, and others may see a counselor for a few sessions or more. We work from a wellness model, which emphasizes developing individual strengths and resources with which to address common developmental concerns, in time-limited counseling. For students who have more serious circumstances and need more intensive treatment, we are happy to provide referrals to community therapists or WSU Counseling and Testing Services. A CVM counselor may provide “check-ins” during work with an outside primary counselor if needed. Please feel free to schedule a consultation if you are unsure if counseling would be helpful for your particular concern. To schedule an appointment, contact Anne LaFrance, LMHC at firstname.lastname@example.org, 335-4607, or Carl Bello, DVM, LMHC, at email@example.com.
