 Office Hours and Location:

The Counseling Center is located on the first floor of the Joseph A. Fidel Center. The entrance is outside of Fidel on the NW side of the building, adjacent to Workman. 


                                   Our Providers:

We adhere to the Code of Ethics of the New Mexico Board of Clinical Mental Health Counselors . Crisis intervention is available; counseling is provided by a New Mexico licensed mental health counselor (LMHC) and an independently-licensed clinical mental health counselor (LPCC).


Currently enrolled NMT graduate or undergraduate students registered for a minimum of 6 credit hours are eligible for our services. The initial appointment is an opportunity for your counselor to determine if the services we offer are appropriate for your needs and for you to decide if our services are a good fit for you.


The State of New Mexico legally recognizes that communication between a counselor and their client as privileged and confidential. We will not disclose your contacts with us to your spouse/partner, your parents, professors, or anyone else without your permission.

                   Scheduling an Appointment

You will be contacted within 1 to 2 business days by email to schedule an appointment based on the availability indicated on the intake form you submit. Students with emergencies can be seen immediately during regular office hours Monday - Friday 8:00 am to 5:00 pm. For after-hours emergencies please contact Campus Police at 575-835-5434. 

Cancellation of Appointments

We require 24 hours notice by phone 575-835-6619 or email counseling@nmt.edu.  Students who miss two or more consecutive appointments (without providing notice) will have their file closed and could be referred to community services should they require psychological care.
