Counseling Services

Counseling

Counseling - or psychotherapy - is a professional relationship that focuses on personal problems. The counseling relationship differs from both social friendships and patient-doctor contacts. Unlike friends, counselors are able to be objective; they are not involved in your daily lives. Unlike most doctors, counselors don't give specific advice or tell you what to do. Instead, they serve as skilled listeners who help you to clarify issues, discover your true wishes and feelings, and deal effectively with problems. Read more...

Psychiatry

An innovative model at the Student Health Center (SHC) provides students with access to psychiatric medication services throughout their NYU career. Students with the NYU sponsored health insurance plans (Consolidated Health Plans - CHP) will have a maximum out of pocket expense of $20 per visit. The cost of care for students without CHP will depend on their specific insurance policy. For assistance determining what this cost of care will be, please contact the Insurance Department at (212) 443-1020. Read more...

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. Read more...
