Group Counseling

Sometimes a problem is better addressed through Group Counseling than individual appointments. Talking to other students who have had similar experiences provides support and perspective. A counseling group can be powerfully healing - for some students, one of the most rewarding experiences during their NYU years.

To sign up for a group, you must arrange to speak to the group leader (except where noted) by calling (212) 998-4780.
