Counseling Services

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 five licensed mental health clinicians and also supervise a part-time graduate-level intern.

Intake Appointments

During the Fall and Spring semesters, brief appointments for students new to the counseling center are available Monday through Friday 9am-4pm, with evening hours on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 4-6pm. These appointments can be scheduled online at the Nazareth Student Health Portal.
