BTC counselors have one goal: to help students experience success. Whether you need assistance to overcome the barriers that sometimes get in your way, or some support while you learn to manage the educational process, we’re here for you.

Counselors provide both academic and personal counseling services for students experiencing difficulties that interfere with learning. Our focus is on providing support, clarifying choices, handling difficult situations, and accessing community resources.

Contact Counseling at counseling@btc.ctc.edu or call 360-752-8345 for more information, or whenever you need some guidance.
