About Counseling and Consultation Services

Our professional psychologists and counselors provide focused individual counseling, group counseling, and psycho-educational presentations. In addition, emotional crisis appointments are available daily for students who feel an urgent need for support.

The professional staff are objective, non-judgmental guides to assist students in overcoming both long-standing and immediate problems. We strive to help students develop new skills and perspectives to enrich their lives.

Some of the common issues that students bring to counseling are depressed and anxious feelings, family difficulties, personal crises, coping with loss, and other impediments to personal and academic functioning. We also aid with self-esteem, self-acceptance, identity and sexuality difficulties, as well as healing from the effects of sexual assault/abuse, suicidal thoughts and other destabilizing experiences.

Our staff provides consultation to a variety of NMU personnel and departments. We offer guidance to students, staff and faculty to recognize and cope with signs of distress in others.
