CFAES has a counselor embedded in our college to work primarily with our students: David L. Wirt, M.Ed., LPCC-S.  David is a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor with OSU’s Counseling and Consultation Services who spends the majority of his time housed in 100Y Ag. Admin. working directly with CFAES students on the Columbus campus.  David comes to us with over 24 years’ experience working with mental health concerns.  He has had a very diverse background of work settings and clientele.  David joined The Ohio State University as a mental health counselor on the Ohio State Newark campus in 2011 before coming to the Columbus campus and CFAES in 2019.

If you are a student who would like to meet with David, please go to and click on “schedule a phone screening.”  This will enable David, or one of his colleagues, to contact you to discuss needs, and to schedule for sessions when needed. You can also call 614-292-5766 to start this process.  Students should mention they are a CFAES student if they call to be routed to David.
