What we do

Counseling Services is dedicated to providing confidential mental health counseling to help current enrolled Niagara University students work through and overcome obstacles that may be hindering their ability to reach their full potential.

We offer a holistic, strength-based perspective that recognizes and respects the dignity of all persons within a safe, supportive, non-judgmental environment. We strive to be aware of and advocate for social justice. Counseling Services is committed to being knowledgeable and sensitive regarding issues of gender, race, ethnicity, national origin, sexual orientation, religion and ability.
