                          Scheduling an Appointment

Cancellation of Appointments

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


Currently enrolled NMT graduate or undergraduate students registered for a minimum of 6 credit hours are eligible for our services. The initial needs assessment appointment is an opportunity for a clinician 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.

Scope of Our Clinical Services

The Counseling Center utilizes a brief, solution-focused counseling model in which individual therapy sessions are offered on a short-term basis designed to help students manage immediate problems and provide short-term solution-focused therapy to facilitate adjustment to college. These services are ideal for issues that have arisen recently or that are expected to be resolved relatively quickly. Brief Therapy is often about bringing successes into the client's awareness which tends to increase hopefulness. The goal is for clinicians to work as quickly as possible to facilitate adjustment, healthy functioning, problem resolution, symptom relief, reduction of emotional distress, and increase resilience with students to continue attending college and pursue their personal, but more specifically their academic goals. Students who would like to speak with a clinician regarding a concern, but are not considering therapy at the Counseling Center for themselves, may schedule a “consultation.”



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.

                   Release of Information (ROI)

If you would like to request your file be sent to another provider, please follow the procedure stated below. If you are a client who was seen more than 7 years ago, we are not able to provide this request as we are only legally required to save records for 7 years after last contact.
