During the Spring 2021 semester, we’ll be offering two types of remote individual counseling services for enrolled NJCU students**:
**Due to interstate restrictions on telehealth and license limitations, services for students currently residing in the U.S. but outside of New Jersey are limited to Let's Talk and referrals at this time. We are unable to provide remote counseling services to students living outside of the U.S.
Let’s Talk – This is a one-time, 25-minute informal consultation with a problem-solving focus. Let’s Talk sessions are offered daily, by appointment, on a first-come, first-served basis. When you contact us for a Let’s Talk appointment you’ll be offered a session with the first available counselor.
Ongoing Short-Term Counseling – This is formal psychotherapy, providing up to twelve 45-minute sessions per academic year (September 1st – August 31st) with an emotional healing focus. Prior to your first appointment you’ll need to fill out a series of intake forms that will assist your therapist in helping you. At times, due to high demand for ongoing counseling services, there may be a wait list.
To set up an appointment for either service, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or at 201-200-3165. Make sure you:
