Hillel UW was the first Hillel in the country to offer a counseling program to serve Jewish young adults on campus and throughout the community. The Hillel Counseling Program is a joint project of Hillel UW and Jewish Family Service.
Counseling can help you navigate life’s twists and turns. You may find one-on-one counseling helpful for:
• Interfaith dating
• LGBTQ, coming out and gender identity issues
• Eating and body image issues
• Substance abuse and recovery
• Pre-marital concerns
• Grief and loss
• Violence and abuse
• Job-related concerns
• Jewish identity issues
Hillel counseling services are:
- Confidential and affordable
- Available to Jewish undergraduate and graduate students. Referrals also available for young adults who are part of our Jconnect community.
- Short- or long-term as needed
Hillel UW is currently in the process of hiring a new counselor. Our program will start up in September 2019.
