Counseling Services

Short-term counseling services (8-10 counseling sessions) offered are intended to help students with developmental issues and challenges, as opposed to providing long-term intensive psychotherapy. A safe and non-threatening environment is assured. During your first appointment, you will meet with a counselor to determine how Counseling and Wellness can best meet your needs. You may be scheduled for further appointments as needed or referred to a more appropriate resource. If you have been hospitalized or in long-term psychotherapy before coming to NU-Q, we can help with referrals for continued mental health care in area.

If students are scheduled for further appointments with Counseling and Wellness, these services are available to full-time enrolled students and part-time enrolled students in their last semester.

Counseling services provided licensed clinicians or clinicians supervised by a licensed clinicians.
