Pathways to Change

A Center for Counseling and Training

Mission Statement:

At Pathways to Change we expand mental-health care to include anyone in need, regardless of race, gender, creed, orientation, or economic status. We also provide a practical learning environment in which our student-therapists can apply psychological principles and develop their clinical skills.


  • No charge for services
  • Therapists are second-year counseling psychology master's students who are developing their clinical skills with actual clients. In this real-world atmosphere, under faculty supervision, they gain valuable experience and prepare themselves for an internship/career.
  • All therapists are trained in theory, techniques, and we subscribe to the most recent APA ethical guidelines, published in 2002.
  • Note to WWU students: Explore your options. There is free counseling available to you at the Counseling, Testing and Wellness Center in Meske Hall. While we are more than happy to help you with any problems/issues you may have, you should be aware of all your options on the WWU campus.


  • Counseling is available for adults, couples, families and school-age children.
  • WE DO NOT:
    • Evaluate for ADHD, dyslexia or other learning disorders (The Walla Walla Clinic, however, has pediatricians that are skilled in this area).
    • Treat alcoholism or other forms of substance abuse (unless client is in AA/NA and can provide the name of his/her sponsor).
    • Counsel individuals who are being treated elsewhere
    • Counsel children under the age of 6.
