**Due to interstate restrictions on telehealth and license limitations, services for students who are residing in the U.S. but physically outside of New Jersey are limited to Let's Talk, support groups, workshops, and referrals at this time.  We are unable to provide remote counseling services to students living outside of the U.S.

VIRTUAL COUNSELING FOR NJCU MONMOUTH STUDENTS

The Counseling Center offers currently enrolled students a variety of services that assist students in resolving problems that arise from personal situations and/or college pressures, and that help students achieve their personal best.


Individual Counseling

Short-term individual counseling involves meeting with one of our therapists to discuss and explore your concerns. Starting August 1, 2021 students will be eligible for up to six 45-minute sessions per academic year (the academic year runs from September 1st through August 31st).  Once a student has used their six individual sessions, we offer a variety of other services they can access! We can also provide off-campus referrals to students who require a higher level of care.

Your counselor will serve as a catalyst to help you make the changes you want to accomplish by listening to your concerns, by providing a framework to help you view your circumstances clearly and objectively, by helping you build new skills, and by helping you consider options in your situation. Topics students commonly choose to explore with a counselor include: adjustment to the University; educational and vocational options; anxiety; depression; self-esteem; family difficulties; relationships; substance abuse; sexual concerns; stress; anger management; parenting; grief/loss; and eating/body image concerns.

Let's Talk

Let’s Talk provides students with informal, one-on-one confidential 25 minute sessions to assist students with specific personal concerns (e.g. relationship conflicts, advice regarding disagreement with a roommate, stress management skills, academic struggles). When necessary, recommendations will be provided.  

These one-time, 25 minute sessions are not meant to be a substitute for psychotherapy, but rather a meeting with a counselor that is goal oriented.

Support groups involve a small group of students meeting with one or more group facilitators, typically once a week for 1 - 1.5 hours. These groups provide the opportunity for individuals to speak with others who share a common area of concern in a supportive environment through sharing, receiving feedback, and providing feedback to others. The facilitators help the group members to communicate productively.
