Mental Health Counseling

Here at Western Iowa Tech, we know that life can be hectic. Juggling school, home, work and the many other things that life throws at us can leave us stressed out and in need of a little self-care. Sometimes you just need someone who will listen, no matter how small the problem. WITCC's very own counselor, Josh Van Zweden, is available on campus Monday - Thursday to talk one-on-one about whatever life has thrown your way. His office is located in the Dr. Robert H. Kiser Building, right next to the admissions desk. Contact us to make an appointment today!
