Your participation in counseling is private and confidential. In accordance with state and federal regulations under the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), information about you is not released to anyone or any entity, including Nevada State College, faculty or staff, without your written permission. There are limitations to confidentiality, which include:

  • Imminent, life-threatening danger to self or others
  • Concerns of abuse of a child, elderly or dependent adult
  • A court order for the release of client records

 

Privacy practices for minors (anyone under the age of 18) differ in some ways, and these will be discussed during your first appointment.

Appointments

It is our goal to make counseling easy to access. All you have to do is email: counseling@nsc.edu.

The counselor will receive your email, and will contact you regarding scheduling. Monday through Thursday counseling appointments, whether in-person or online, are with NSC’s Licensed Counselor, Annise Prewitt, MSW, LCSW, CCTP. She is delighted to work with any NSC students, who feel they could use extra support.

Location: On-campus appointments are held in Dawson, room 219A.
