Counseling Services

NDNU Counseling Services is dedicated to providing a broad range of support to assist currently registered students. We strive to provide services that reflect our strong commitment to diversity and to the individual needs of all students here at NDNU.

These services include:

  • Brief and short term therapy
  • Couples therapy
  • Group therapy
  • Crisis intervention
  • Triage
  • Referral services
  • Case management services
  • Outreach and programming services
  • Consultation and referrals for faculty and staff

Upcoming Changes

In order to provide psychological services to as many students as possible, Counseling Services is limiting the number of therapy sessions for all registered students beginning in the Fall Semester of 2014. This means that registrants are eligible to be seen by a counselor for up-to-15 50-minutes sessions per academic year. Students will be strongly encouraged to utilize sessions consecutively or, if deemed appropriate by the counseling staff, every other week.

Confidentiality

Counseling is offered in an atmosphere of support and understanding. The counselors will listen, help clarify personal concerns, identify goals and strategies for changes and provide support throughout the process.

Counseling sessions are confidential to ensure that students feel free to talk about anything that is of concern. No information is released without the student's consent or request.
