Some concerns Student Counseling Services can help address:

  • Academic concerns & Career development
  • Relationship challenges
  • Stress and time management
  • Substance abuse
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Adjustment to student life
  • Problem solving & goal setting

But along with these changes often come a variety of challenges and concerns that are new to many students. Stress, anxiety, and a range of other emotions are normal reactions to the demanding programs and college life. Sometimes, these emotions become difficult to deal with alone, and it is often helpful to talk to someone or to reach out and ask for help.

Student counseling provides the opportunity for students to benefit from working on personal issues with experienced professionals.

The counseling relationship is objective, non-judgmental, and understanding. Most importantly, the counseling relationship is strictly confidential. Nova Southeastern University students are afforded the opportunity to express their emotions in an uninhibited environment.

The counseling center is staffed by licensed mental health professionals, a licensed psychologist and a psychiatrist.
