Meeting with a Wellness Counselor at the Lewis Goodhouse Wellness Center is free for current United Tribes Technical College students and their immediate family members. Students are assigned to a counselor in relation to their degree program (please see below). If student concerns would more appropriately be addressed by another agency, the proper referral(s) will be made. Wellness Counselors provide therapeutic interventions, including supportive counseling, meditation, and relaxation techniques.

Hello! My name is Saige Sandve a counselor here at UTTC. I received my Bachelor’s and Master’s Degrees through the University of Mary. I have had a multitude of experiences throughout my schooling; from working with small children, adolescents, couples, families, military, and vulnerable populations. I incorporate a multitude of counseling techniques because counseling is not a “one size fits all” experience. My goal is to continue counseling with individuals and couples in a therapeutic setting.
