Scheduling an Initial Consultation

How to Schedule an Initial Counsultation

In order to best serve our students, Counseling Services operates on a same-day scheduling basis.
Please contact our office at (775) 784-4648 to schedule a same-day initial consultation.
Our office staff will be happy to arrange for students to meet with a counselor.
Initial consultation appointments are typically 1-1 ½ hours in length, which includes time spent to complete initial paperwork.  
We have limited daily initial consultation appointments, so students should contact us early on a day that works well for them.
Due to our heightened demand for service, appointments fill up quickly.

Please have your NSHE ID number available when calling for an appointment.

How Do I See a Clinician When All Initial Consultations are Full?

Urgent Care

If students have urgent psychological concerns, they have an opportunity to meet with a clinician during our Urgent Care hours on Wednesdays and Fridays.
The hours for this service vary. Please contact Counseling Services at (775) 784-4648 for information.
Due to the nature of this service, students may experience a wait time to see a counselor.
