Health and Counseling

Counseling Services

During the pandemic

Counseling Services has returned to in-person services for students who are up-to-date on their COVID-19 vaccinations (those who are not are eligible for telehealth appointments). Zoom appointments are also available for comfort or convenience; please let your therapist know which you would prefer.

Make an appointment through the portal.

We offer short-term, solution-focused, on-campus mental health treatment including the following services:

  • intake and evaluation
  • workshops and group counseling (see GROUP COUNSELING section below)
  • limited short-term individual counseling as appropriate and determined during intake visit
  • psycho-pharmacological evaluation and medication management (after referral from a counselor)
  • crisis intervention services
  • referral to off-campus clinicians for specialized and/or long term/intensive treatment
  • outreach and consultation
  • psycho-educational programming

All students are eligible for an initial consultation with a Counseling Services therapist, and based upon that conversation the clinician and student will work together to find a course of action that best suits the student's needs. Options include but are not limited to skill-building workshops, themed based groups (such as stress management, building healthy relationships, time management), and limited short-term individual counseling on campus.

For needs outside our scope of practice, or if you may benefit from longer-term therapy, you may be referred to an off-campus partner.

We are staffed by four licensed mental health clinicians and a part-time psychiatric nurse practitioner.

Intake Appointments

During the Fall and Spring semesters, brief appointments for students new to the counseling center are available Monday through Friday 9am-4pm. These appointments can be scheduled online at the Nazareth Student Health Portal.

Students in Crisis

Brief appointments for students in crisis are also available at the counseling center during business hours. If you experience a mental health crisis outside of business hours, please contact Mobile Crisis at 585-275-5151, or Campus Safety at 585-389-2850.
