JWU Counseling Services

Mental health is important. This confidential resource supports JWU students in managing their emotional wellbeing. We offer short-term individual therapy, group therapy, crisis intervention, consultation, and referrals. Stephanie Dixon, director of JWU Providence Counseling Services:

We believe it is critically important for our students to be seen and to be heard during this time. Counseling Services will continue to be a safe and affirming place for students to be seen, to be heard, and to be supported. We are committed to supporting our students and working to effect change in our campus community and beyond. Students are dealing with so much uncertainty right now along with a tremendous amount of emotion and feelings like anger, pain, fear, grief, sadness, to name a only a few. If students feel isolated and are having difficulties coping we would strongly encourage them to reach out for support.

To make an appointment, call our office at 401-598-1016. For after-hours emergencies, contact an on-call counselor at 888-222-4805.
