About Us

The Wellness Center is the home of NNU Counseling Services including licensed counselors and interns providing solution-focused, client-centered counseling. Because we use a walk-in model, there are a variety of scheduling and counseling options. We provide free confidential counseling services for NNU undergraduate students. As an undergraduate student, you can walk in or schedule the initial session with a counselor, usually lasting about 30 minutes. That session may provide the assistance you need on the spot. You can then choose to schedule another walk-in appointment or a longer session which is about 45 minutes. In order to provide all NNU undergraduate students with counseling as needed, we do not schedule recurring appointments.

Since the Wellness Center is a training center with licensed counselors, we may also have interns and practicum students. All trainees are supervised and discuss their sessions with our Clinical Supervisor. The intention of this supervision is to provide the highest quality care. Students have the choice of which counselor they see and are free to discontinue services at any time.

In addition to counseling for undergraduate students, NNU Counseling Services provides consultations, referrals and trainings for NNU staff, faculty and graduate students.

We also oversee the Peer Mentor program which is a group of returning students who provide peer support for undergraduate students. They are trained in confidentiality, making appropriate referrals, being good listeners and reaching out to others. Each wing in the first-year residence halls is assigned a peer mentor to partner with the Resident Assistant (RA) on that wing. There are also peer mentors for athletes, transfer and commuter students.
