The Counseling Center offers personal, confidential, and professional assistance to students. It is open to BBCC students in all programs. A student may meet with the counselor of their choice. Counselors use a “whole person” approach in their work. Students may find that certain personal issues need to be addressed in order to take advantage of all the college has to offer. Counselors help students explore options and teach them to make decisions that support their educational and career goals. BBCC counselors assist students with referrals to off campus professionals if necessary.

International students have particular needs; the Counseling Center offers specialized advising for international students.

Appointments are preferred, although counselors are generally available for drop-in appointments. To make an appointment with Jaime Garza, Heidi Gephart, or MariAnne Zavala-Lopez , please call (509) 793-2035. Currently, counseling services are provided remotely. ​
