Services and Appointments

Counseling and Psychological Services offers a variety of services – all of which are covered with the student health fee. Please review the information below to determine which service might best serve your needs. If you’re not sure, please give us a call (anonymously if you like) and we’ll be happy to advise you.

Group Opportunities 
CAPS is here to help you navigate through college life. The following group sessions are geared toward positive outcomes. Join now!
Pathways
Pathways is an introductory counseling workshop that is educational, interactive and designed to accelerate the change process. It is not group therapy. It is three meetings over a one-week period that are quick and to-the-point. The meetings cover three key areas we have found most helpful for students: conflict resolution, anxiety/stress and mindfulness. 

Sisters: Connect and Discover
Sisters: Connect and Discover is an eight-week group for women to support self-esteem, manage moods and emotions, and strengthen relationships. Offered every fall and spring semester. 

Tame Your Mind
Tame Your Mind is a six-session group offered during the Fall and Spring semesters to help students who are struggling with negative ruminating thoughts, who need to quiet their mind and find peace, and/or who need help redirecting their energy to what matters to them. 

Transitions
Transitions is offered twice weekly early September as a support group for students having a difficult time adjusting to college life. Contact CAPS for more information.

Services
Biofeedback
Learn to bring your brain, mind, body and emotions into balanced alignment. Use HeartMath to focus on your heart rate and breathing to improve performance, build resiliency and relieve stress. Contact CAPS to learn how to use the program. It is designed to be self-directed and/or can be used in conjunction with counseling.

Let’s Talk
Let's Talk is a program offered during the Fall and Spring semesters that provides easy access to informal consultations with counselors from SNC. It is a "DROP IN" service and it is not necessary to schedule an appointment and it's free!

Open every Tuesday from 4:30 to 6:00 PM in the Library across from the Circulation Desk and Fridays from 10:30 AM to Noon in the Campus Center room 210.

Party.O
Party.0 are alcohol-free parties hosted monthly by two residential themed community houses. Contact CAPS for information on the next party.

TAO
TAO is a self-paced, interactive, web-based program that provides well-researched and highly effective strategies to help overcome anxiety, depression and other common concerns. You can learn these skills on your own or with the help of a CAPS counselor. Visit the TAO website and create an account for access to digital self-help and therapy tools. Contact the CAPS office if you have any questions.

Yoga and Mindfulness
During the Spring semester, January 25th - May 4th, join Lisa Burke (Counseling) for yoga in the Contemplation Space in Pennings Activity Center (PAC) Room 206, Tuesdays 9-9:30 a.m., and Thursdays 9-9:30 a.m. and 4-4:30 p.m. Also, join Cara Orbell ’22 for yoga in the Contemplation Space in Pennings Activity Center (PAC) Room 206, Wednesdays 5:30-6:30 p.m.

YOU@SNC
You@SNC is a wellness search engine set up to connect you to what is happening at SNC, to gather information and to assist you in establishing a wellness plan for your life.

Individual Counseling Sessions Services
Counseling sessions are available at no charge to any enrolled degree-seeking St. Norbert College student who has paid the student health fee. 

Appointments
Scheduled appointments are available for students interested in speaking with a psychologist or counselor when the situation is not considered an emergency. We schedule these appointments within a day or two and sometimes sooner. The intake appointment is typically 50 minutes and follow-up meetings will be determined as the presenting issues are discussed with your counselor.

Crisis Appointments and After-Hours Care
Crisis appointments are available at any time. If you feel at risk of harming yourself or others, simply call us or walk over and let us know you need immediate assistance, and we’ll find a way to meet with you.

After-hours contacts should be coordinated through an area coordinator or SNC Campus Safety at 920-403-3299. A counseling staff member will be available after hours for over the phone consultation in crisis situations. After-hours counseling is also always available through the local Crisis Center at 920-436-8888 and the National Suicide Prevention Hotline 800-273-8255 or 800-784-2433.

Alcohol and Other Drug (AODA) Appointments 
These appointments are for students that have been referred by an area coordinator or a Judicial Affairs representative, as part of the sanctioning process. The first meeting is 60 minutes and is similar in format to first appointments. A follow-up meeting of 30-55 minutes is included to follow up on information obtained in the first meeting. The goal is to help you understand the outcome of your actions.  All the information shared is confidential; the only thing an Area Coordinator, or the Office of Judicial Affairs will know is that you have attended the appointment and that you have successfully completed the meeting(s) that were assigned to you.

If you’d like to schedule an appointment with one of our staff members, please contact us at 920-403-3045 or counseling@snc.edu.
