Services During SPRING 2021

We want you to know that we are here for you!

CWC is working to adapt services to meet your needs during this challenging and unprecedented time of COVID.  In order to protect the health of students and staff, we will be providing all counseling appointments by telehealth (either secure Zoom video, or phone).

Accessing Counseling Services:

  • To schedule an appointment with a CWC counselor, call Dianne at 612-330-1707, or email Dianne directly at with specific times you are available during the day Monday through Friday.
  • If you are residing in the state of Minnesota, you are eligible for virtual counseling appointments through CWC. Since our counselors are licensed only in Minnesota, currently we can only legally/ethically provide counseling to students located in Minnesota.  Prior to your appointment, you will need to complete intake paperwork through a secure link that Dianne will email to you.
  • If you are living outside of Minnesota: Please contact CWC to set up a telehealth consultation appointment. We can discuss your concerns, help with short-term problem-solving and help you connect with qualified counseling providers in your local area.  You will also be eligible for our Skills psychoeducation group led by one of our counselors (contact Josh Kent at for more information).
