Counseling Services

Counseling Services

Counseling and case management services are free and available for all current students to assist in dealing with issues that impact their overall well-being. Your counselor understands that there are pressures and challenges faced while in college – not all of them academic. Through counseling and case management, current students can share problems in a safe and supportive space.

Counselors can help during these times by:
  • Sharing ways to manage stress and anxiety
  • Linking students to school and community resources
  • Assist in improving problem-solving and coping skills
  • Helping identify strengths and sources of support
  • Offering a different perspective
  • Providing a safe place to talk and have someone who will listen

Walk-ins are welcome during office hours:
Monday through Friday – 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

Students may schedule an appointment in MyBTC using Starfish.

Located on Central Campus in Student Services or at regional locations by appointment. We do not offer service after-hours or when the college is closed.

Students needing immediate assistance can walk-in during office hours. If possible, please call ahead to let us know you're coming. If individual counseling needs are determined to be beyond what is considered brief, every effort will be made to refer the student to an affordable, appropriate community-based provider.
