SUMMER INFORMATION:

If you are taking a class for Summer A or Summer B and would like to be connected with a therapist, please email Kathryn DeVinney kdevinn2@naz.edu

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 and Walk-In Hours

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 during the walk-in hours at the counseling center. 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.
