Counseling Services

NSC has contracted with Healing Reflections to provide free, short-term mental health therapy to NSC students on campus.  Lisa Schapiro, LMFT, will be at NSC every Wednesday, and she will be located in the Dawson Building in room 104B.  Since Ms. Schapiro is only here one day per week, we want to maximize her reach by utilizing a short-term therapy model focusing on stabilization, symptom reduction, and skills building.  We are also hoping to integrate the services of our NSC case manager, Ms. Kristie Collins, to provide assistance in accessing necessary community and campus resources and to ensure a seamless transition after therapy services have been provided.  If you would like to schedule an appointment, please contact Ms. Schapiro directly at 702-332-5874.

In addition, NSC is also partnered with UNLV CAPS to provide individual and/or group therapy for NSC students. UNLV CAPS also has a full-time psychiatrist on staff to provide medication management of symptoms if deemed clinically appropriate. There is no direct cost to students for these services. CAPS psychologists and counselors specialize in dealing with the problems commonly experienced by college students of all ages and collaborate with the student to increase self-understanding and to develop the skills necessary to overcome personal concerns. CAPS is located in the Student Recreation and Wellness Center (SRWC), room 1500, on the UNLV campus. Students should clearly identify themselves as NSC students when contacting CAPS.

Students should be aware that professional ethics codes and state laws consider the personal information discussed in counseling to be strictly confidential. All information gathered in counseling, including the fact that the student has accessed services with Healing Reflections or UNLV CAPS, is held in strict confidence. No information is released to Nevada State College officials, faculty members, parents, or outside agencies without written prior authorization from the student (an exception is made when there is imminent danger or serious harm to self or others in this case, the counselor must take action to prevent harm).
