The links below provide multilingual videos by some of the counselors talking about the services of the BC Counseling Center.

We can also work with you to find a counselor in the community who speaks your language.

  • BC counselors are here to listen and help you move towards your goals.
  • It’s okay to be nervous.
  • All counseling services are culturally responsive and social justice oriented. Counselors are non-judgmental, listen while supporting your decision-making, and advocate on your behalf.
  • All interactions with a counselor are confidential.
    • Ethically, counselors cannot and will not share anything you say during counseling appointments with anyone outside of the counseling center. There are a few safety and other related exceptions to confidentiality that your counselor will discuss with you during your appointment.
  • All students will complete a brief informed consent and preliminary counseling paperwork. What, and how much of this paperwork you choose to complete is completely voluntary.
  • Read our FAQs for more information on what does the initial session look like?

Below is a growing list of on demand videos created by the BC Counseling Center on a range of mental health related topics. These videos are open to the public. Feel free to watch these on your own, with a class, or embed in Canvas.

All videos are closed captioned.

Living in the Pacific Northwest, especially during the long and grey winter months can have a big impact on our mood. This 10-minute video provides an overview of the relationship between the weather and our mood as well as some tips to help you cope.

Thank you for meeting with one of BC’s counselors. Please select your counselor from the list below and take a few minutes to complete an anonymous evaluation of your session. Your feedback is important to us.
