Student Counseling and Career Services supports student success by providing counseling and mental health services to Northeastern students and comprehensive career preparation and development for both students and alumni.

Counseling and therapy is provided to help students understand and deal with emotional distress, relationship difficulties, and personal concerns, freeing them up to make clearer and healthier decisions. In therapy, students can explore personal life problems including anxiety, depression, suicidal thoughts, relationship problems, anger, addictions, and many other difficulties that may cause stress and disrupt their life. Individual, couples, and group psychotherapy is available to current students. Faculty and staff are eligible for consultation and outreach services. When services are needed that are beyond the scope of Student Counseling and Career Services, referrals are made to outside providers.

Through individualized career advising appointments, Student Counseling and Career Services offers resume critiques and guided exploration of career and internship opportunities. Job search strategy skills and opportunities are provided through resume building activities, workshops, job fairs, employer information sessions, and many other University and off-site events.
