Here at the Nichols College Counseling Center (NCCC) our mission is to empower students to accomplish their mental health, education, and career goals utilizing a wide-range of strengths-based, short-term solution-focused student-centered Counseling modalities. Our goal to decrease stigma around mental health issues and empower the Nichols Community to support the counseling needs of our students with our integrative approach collaborating with many departments of the Nichols Community. We strive to educate and support the Nichols Community as we experience the high demand for Mental Health services across higher education.

Our well-being is shaped by many factors that change throughout one’s life. Because of this dynamic nature, our office is committed not to simply educating around a narrow concept of wellness, but around self-reflection so that our students are empowered to make the best decisions for themselves at any given time in their life while at Nichols, and beyond!

The Counseling Center is staffed with experienced professional therapists who can help with a wide variety of mental health concerns, as well as basic life stressors and social concerns. We encourage students to use our free confidential clinical services as well as our 24/7 support line, Find@Nichols: 833-434-1217.
