Frequently Called Numbers
Wiregrass Georgia Technical College is excited to offer counseling services at no cost to you!
Through a partnership with FamilyWorks of Valdosta State University, graduate interns are available by appointment for confidential personal counseling or group sessions to students on both the Valdosta and Cook County campuses.
FamilyWorks interns are advanced standing graduate students enrolled in the Marriage and Family Therapy Program at Valdosta State University. Each intern has undergone a screening process prior to being accepted into the MFT Program. All interns are under the direct supervision of experienced, state licensed, qualified faculty of the MFT Program.
Any individual, couples who are married, unmarried, living or not living together, roommates, children, and families of all varieties. Counseling and therapy has been found to be helpful to people with many different kinds of problems. These might include:
Print and complete a Confidential Appointment Request form or pick up one up in person outside Room 116 in Berrien Hall on the Valdosta Campus. Drop off your form in the locked box in the same location.
Call (229) 219-1281 and leave a confidential message with at least your name and number where you can be reached. A therapist intern will contact you within 24 hours to schedule an appointment.
Wiregrass students may be seen on the Valdosta Campus or at FamilyWorks on Patterson Street for counseling. Students unable to come to one of these locations should contact one of the Special Populations Coordinators, Nicole West or Cassandra Jordan, for a confidential referral to a local outside agency or organization for counseling assistance. If a coordinator is not available, students may contact the Director of Retention or staff in the Student Success Center on any campus.
For 24-hour emergency services, students may contact the Georgia Crisis & Access Line at 1-800-715-4225.
Students who wish to read self-help materials related to counseling may visit the Unabridged Student Counseling Virtual Pamphlet Collection. This website is a collection of short publications related to topics ranging from anxiety to stress to wellness.
