Welcome to the EOU Counseling Center!


*****COVID-19*****

Updated information for Fall 2020!

Welcome back to another school year, Mountaineers!

The Student Health and Counseling Center is open for student appointments on September 23rd, the first day of classes fall term. The Counseling Center is offering only telehealth sessions during fall term. To be eligible for counseling services, you need to have paid the Health Service Fee, and be in the state of Oregon at the time of your appointment (as our counselors are licensed to practice psychology only within Oregon). We will be using Zoom’s HIPPA-secured platform for these sessions, just like we did during spring term. To access these services, call 541.962.3524 and let the person at the front desk know that you would like to see a counselor. Your information will be forwarded to the counselors and someone will get back to you. Meanwhile, know that we continue to miss seeing you in person, yet are very grateful for the opportunity to offer Zoom sessions.

Better Together … A Drop-In Support Group for EOU Students during COVID-19

The Counseling Center is also excited to offer an ongoing drop-in support group, available to any current EOU student that may be struggling right now, on Mondays from 1:30-2:30 and Thursdays from 10 -11 PST. (CLICK HERE FOR MORE INFORMATION)

Please be aware that Counseling Center staff does not routinely access phone messages or email during non-business hours, and cannot guarantee an immediate response. Therefore, do not use phone messages or email to communicate emergency or urgent needs. If you have an after-hours emergency, please call 911, or the Center for Human Development (CHD) at 541-962-8800.

Helping students heal, grow and reach their goals!

Students come to the Counseling Center for a variety of reasons. Some are looking for help in coping with the pressures associated with a challenging academic environment or adjustment to college life. Others want to learn how to be more effective in developing, negotiating, or maintaining relationships with others. Counseling can be beneficial for students who are feeling depressed or anxious, as well as those who want to examine their beliefs or explore their current life situation.

The Counseling Center offers students the opportunity to look at themselves and their environment and to change the way they think, feel, and behave so that they can make the most of their time at EOU.

Our Counseling Center services are available to students who have been assessed the Health Service Fee. Some students who have not automatically been assessed the Health Service Fee may “opt in.” Please talk with the Student Health and Counseling Center front desk for more information.


Counseling Center services available to students include:

  • Individual Counseling
  • Crisis Intervention
  • Outreach Services
  • Training and education workshops



If you are interested in utilizing one of our services at the Counseling Center, please visit during one of our drop-in hours:

  • Monday and Wednesday: 9:30 AM to 11:30 AM
  • Tuesday and Thursday: 1:30 PM to 3:30 PM

A counselor should be available to meet with you during these times. Drop-in times are typically the quickest way to meet with a counselor. Arrangements may be made if drop-in times do not work with your schedule.

Drop-in appointments occur on a first-come first serve basis, so we encourage students to come in as early as possible during the drop-in time frame.  If you present during drop-ins and are unable to see a counselor, you are encouraged to come in during another drop-in time. All information shared by clients is confidential, with few exceptions that you can speak with your counselor about.

Please be aware that Counseling Center staff does not routinely access phone messages or email during non-business hours, and cannot guarantee an immediate response. Therefore, do not use phone messages or email to communicate emergency or urgent needs.  If this is an after-hours emergency, please call 911, or the Center for Human Development (CHD) at 541-962-8800.
