Life as a student can be exciting, overwhelming, rewarding and challenging all at once. Gateway’s Student Support Counselors can provide that extra support needed to help you overcome challenges as you pursue your educational goals. We offer counseling for students free of charge at the Elkhorn, Kenosha and Racine campuses. Our Student Support Counselors are Licensed Professional Counselors in the State of Wisconsin, have master’s degrees in Counseling and are members of the American Counseling Association and American College Counseling Association. 

Your appointment will be kept private and confidential. The exceptions to this are if you share a threat to yourself or to someone else, or inform us of child/elder abuse or neglect. At times, we rely on a team approach and may consult as needed to provide the best service for you. Short-term counseling is available, with referrals to community partners for long-term needs. 

Student Support Counselors can help you address: 

  • Personal or relationship issues
  • Transition and change
  • Stress management
  • Communication skills
  • Grief and loss
  • Community referrals
  • Cultural/diversity concerns
  • Self-awareness/advocacy
  • Coping strategies
  • Personal wellness and self-care

Mental health matters and taking this short screening is a quick, anonymous way to track how you’re coping with life’s ups and downs.

Make an appointment by calling 1-800-247-7122.
