Making an Appointment with Counseling

We are located on the Dandini Campus in the Red Mountain Building, room 115. Appointments can be made in person at the Counseling Center or by calling the front desk staff at 775-673-7060. If the lines are busy, voice mail (available 24 hours) will pick up and you can leave a message to have your call returned within 48 hours.


Call or walk in to the Counseling Center during business hours. Let the front desk staff know that you are requesting a same-day emergency appointment. A counselor (if available) will briefly meet with you to determine the best course of action, such as scheduling an appointment, referring to other resources, etc.

If you are experiencing a crisis and a counselor is not available, or if it is after hours, please call:

What to Expect

During your first meeting with a professionally trained and skilled counselor, you can expect to be asked questions about your concerns as well as any history that may be relevant to an understanding of yourself. After discussing your concerns with you, the counselor may decide to:

  • See you individually
  • Refer you to another college service
  • Refer you to a service in the community

Depending on the time of the year that you are seeking counseling, you may have to wait several weeks for an appointment. If you are in an immediate crisis, we will try to see you as soon as possible.

When scheduling an appointment, you will be asked to provide your email address as we will send a reminder of your appointment and a follow-up survey. You will also be asked to confirm you have read this information and to check-in online prior to your appointment. The process is confidential.
