South Seattle Community College counselors provide a welcoming and confidential environment for students to explore personal issues that impact their ability to achieve their academic and other life goals.  Counselors work with each student using cultural sensitivity, and advocate for students to take empowered steps towards positive self-growth and academic success.

Students in need of immediate support or intervention should dial 911 or contact the King County Crisis Line at (206) 461-3222 or toll free, (866) 427-4747.

  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Emotion management
  • Feelings of sadness or “feeling down”
  • Grief and loss

  • Lack of balance in life
  • Lack of direction
  • Life transitions
  • Relationship or family issues
  • Resolving a conflict with another student or faculty member
