What do Counselors Do?

  • Assist students with a wide variety of personal life challenges;
  • Concerns that may be impacting academic performance;
  • Help students use their values and interests to explore college majors and career choices;

What Can I Expect During My Counseling Session?

  • 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 if necessary.
  • All interactions with a counselor, including everything you discuss and even appointments that are made, 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.
  • Because of the confidential nature of our services, all students will be asked to complete a brief informed consent and preliminary counseling paperwork. What, and how much of this paperwork you choose to complete is completely voluntary.

Urgent Care

  • If you have an immediate health-related emergency, please call 9-1-1, campus safety at 425-564-2400 or the 24-hour crisis line at 206-461-3222.
