We work to create a learning environment where you feel safe, respected, and valued. Our goal is to encourage you to develop a well-rounded and balanced life including care for self, others, and the world. As the mental health resource for Northland College, this office provides free, comprehensive services.
The professional counseling staff recognizes that the challenges of college life require a variety of personal strengths and problem solving skills. Short-term counseling is available, as well as crisis management and off-campus referral, to assist you to strengthen and develop your abilities to effectively cope with the experiences of living, growing, and learning at Northland.
In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, appointments are strongly encouraged. Appointments can be made for in-person counseling or for tele-counseling with your computer or mobile device. In-person sessions require a face covering. If you prefer tele-counseling, the counselor will give you details about how to log in prior to your appointment time.
If there is a life threatening emergency, dial 911. In a non-life threatening crisis, you can try and reach either counselor by phone, email, or stopping by. Other members of student affairs may be helpful in reaching the counselors. We make every effort to meet you promptly, but we may not always be available for immediate assistance.
