To schedule an individual counseling appointment, please call 402.280.2735. Upon calling, you’ll be scheduled for a 20-minute phone consultation, during which you’ll be asked to briefly share your concerns and the counselor will discuss your care options. Depending on your needs, you’ll then be scheduled for an appointment. Please be aware that there may be a waitlist, so it’s better to call sooner rather than later. If you’re in crisis, we’ll do our best to see you as soon as possible.

Student Counseling Services is an outpatient mental health service dedicated to treatment of enrolled Creighton undergraduate, graduate, and professional students. Generally, Counseling Services can treat the emotional difficulties and mental disorders that can safely be managed within the structure of an outpatient service. There are certain mental health disorders that cannot be effectively treated within the structure and resources of Creighton’s Counseling Services. Students that cannot be treated effectively or safely within this structure of resources will be referred to mental health resources within the community (in Omaha or in the student’s home community). Situations that require referral include (but are not limited to) the following: symptoms of disorganized or disruptive psychoses and high suicidal potential requiring inpatient hospital treatment; serious eating disorders; serious substance abuse/addiction treatment; chronic emotional crisis requiring intensive treatment, frequent appointments or special supervision or behavioral management.
