Mission

The Naropa Student Counseling Center, (NSCC) integrates contemplative approaches with modern clinical practice to assist our student in reaching their highest level of well-being.  We provide cutting edge interventions across a broad range of therapeutic services to support students on their transformational journey.

Our Services

NSCC offers individual, couples, and group therapy, crisis/walk in appointments during set hours (see crisis below), and outreach and education on a variety of mental health and well-being topics. 

College students face many challenges and we are able to provide weekly sessions with students seeking support for the following issues: relationships, sexual orientation and gender identity, depression, anxiety, cultural identity and diversity, body image, stress management, transition, existential, grief, and more (see Weekly Sessions). 

Students with ongoing or specialized mental health needs can access our Walk in/ Crisis hours, request brief-therapy with a licensed counselor, and utilize local crisis services (see crisis section).  We also help these students get set up with local community resources (see scope of services and limitations section).

Our services are covered by tuition and student fees. 

Our Staff

The Naropa Student Counseling Center is dedicated to supporting the overall well-being and transformational journey of Naropa Students. We offer assessments, counseling, and referrals for current Naropa students, free of charge. We are a small university counseling center and are staffed by licensed counselors and unlicensed trainees in their second and third year of graduate school.  Most ongoing counseling is provided by Counselors in Training.  Our trainees are supervised by licensed clinicians and participate in our comprehensive Masters Training Program.  Professional Staff provide clinical supervision, outreach and education for the student body, as well as consultation and leadership to several teams within the Naropa community.  They host Walk in/Crisis hours and work with a small caseload of students utilizing a short-term brief therapy model.

Shannon’s wishes to empower clients to cultivate their inherent health and discern what is no longer serving them in a strengths-based, client centered environment that is rooted in relational, experiential, and grounded experiences. When not at Naropa, you can find Shannon spending time with her pups, on her yoga mat, or soaking up the Colorado sunshine on a hike or bike ride.

Confidentiality and Dual Relationships

NSCC counselors maintain confidentiality within the normal limits of counseling.  Information from sessions will not be shared with faculty, staff, or anyone who is not a Counselor with the Naropa Student Counseling Center.  Exceptions to confidentiality occur when counselors need to take steps to assure the safety of clients and others when there is a threat of imminent harm.  Counselors are mandatory reporters.

To respect and maintain professional boundaries we take care to assure that clients are treated by counselors with whom they do not have existing collegial, professional, personal, or other relationships.  Please discuss any questions or concerns around confidentiality or dual relationships with us.

 

Limits to our Scope of Service and Referrals

Like most university counseling centers NSCC has a high demand for services and is unable to meet all of the mental health needs of our student body in house.  We are a small center that relies heavily on Counselors-in-training and have a limited scope of practice. 

We are unable to provide in house psychiatric evaluation, prescriptions or medication management, psychological, educational, or disability testing, emotional support animal documentation, 24-7 Crisis

response, intensive outpatient, inpatient, or other specialized services.  We refer many students to community resources to help them get the support they need.

Students who have significant or ongoing struggles with mental health, active addiction(s), eating disorder(s), unmedicated bi-polar, schizophrenia, active psychosis, PTSD, or other complex needs will be assessed and then offered short term stabilization support and/or referred to others in the local community. 

When a student’s need surpasses the scope of our center and they are not in imminent harm we provide case management session(s) to help them get set up with referrals to licensed providers and local agencies who are a better match.  These students may still utilize our Walk in/ Crisis Hours.

Many students understand our limits and come to Naropa knowing they are interested in working with a licensed counselor ongoingly, want or need year-round counseling support, more frequent session, medication support, and/or other specialized psychological care that we are unable to provide.  If you’d like help getting set up in the local community with any type of psychological support, please let us know.  We will schedule a screen and then a case management session to help you get set up with the best care.

We do not offer phone or video counseling and clients need to be available to attend sessions in person.  If you are unable to attend in person, please see Psychology Today or other listings to find providers in your local area.

Crisis/Walk In Services

Walk in/ Crisis hours are offered by Licensed Counselors daily from 11 am-12 pm and 3 pm-4 pm in Juniper Cottage on the Arapahoe Campus and Mondays 12 pm - 1pm in the upstairs conference room on the Nalanda Campus during the academic year.  These sessions are 30 minutes long and students are served in a first come first serve basis.

If you or someone you know is experiencing a psychological emergency, please call Colorado Crisis Services at 1.844.493.8255 or walk in at MHPs local crisis center:  3180 Airport Road Boulder Colorado.

Students seeking ongoing counseling sessions begin the process by emailing or calling the center, and then meet with a counselor for an initial 20-minute assessment session to help NSCC staff determine whether our services are right for them.  Counselors will then conduct a 60-75 minute history taking session, after which students can begin weekly sessions with a Counselor-in-Training.   Student within this scope (see Scope and Limits) can receive 12 sessions per year.

Getting Started with NSCC

If you are a student at Naropa and are interested in getting started with weekly sessions, please email us or call us (See Contact Info). 

If you’d like to talk to someone today drop by for our Walk In/ Crisis Hours (see Crisis).

Naropa Student Counseling Center Master’s Training Program

We invite you to consider an Internship, Practicum, or Externship with the Naropa Student Counseling Center at Naropa University.

Our small liberal arts college serves undergraduate and graduate students with a variety of issues to support their transformational journey at Naropa University.  Trainees enjoy working with diverse issues and their work includes providing individual, group, and/ or couples counseling with traditional and non-traditional college and graduate students.  Our trainees also provide outreach, education, and advocacy on the campus around mental health issues. 

Our training program provides excellent experience with a wide variety of clinical issues ranging from response to severe and ongoing mental health needs and crisis response, to working with insightful growth-based clients, and everything in between.  We provide a program that integrates the creative, contemplative, holistic, spiritual and humanistic traditions Naropa trained counselors are familiar with, and help trainees develop the Clinical Skills Development that is critical to work in the field.  Trainees enjoy the creative, reflective and seeking nature that many of our clients bring to the therapy process.

Trainees play dual roles as both students and staff of Naropa during their placement year(s) with us.  The situation challenges them to pull from the wisdom and compassion they bring to their role as Student-Serving-Students, and to step into their emerging Professional Counselor Identity.  We take great care to assure client confidentiality and avoid dual relationships, and trainees who work with us are supported as they navigate the complexity of working in a small community.

 

Our Training Philosophy

Our approach to training and supervision is based on a developmental model.  We view learning as a process that occurs through the practice of professional counseling activities while also giving the trainee the opportunity to observe professional counselors in action, and receive support, training, and feedback.  Our training program has been designed to provide opportunities for new counselors to gain mastery with basic skills and move toward increasing complexity in their work over time.  We provide the necessary structure, support, guidance, and feedback to facilitate development as the trainee moves toward greater capacity and effectiveness as a new counselor. 

Our training program is centered on challenge and support opportunities in the four core realms of Clinical Skill, Professional Identity, Administrative Effectiveness, and Self of the Therapist.  We integrate these, as well as ethics, into all our supervision and training processes.  We see the training process as one that parallels the client journey of growth, and provide Parallel Process Group support to help folks integrate their experience in their new role.

We begin the year with a 2-3 week long orientation that provides staff and interns ample opportunities to develop strong working relationships.  This is followed by a two month period wherein the focus is for the staff to learn about each of the trainees’ experiences, strengths, training, and interests and identify areas of growth. 

We strive to support trainees both individually and as a group.  Upon the successful completion of our internship interns will be prepared for entry level professional practice, as generalists, within the field of counseling and mental health.  Upon successful completion of practicum, trainees will be prepared to offer intakes, assessments, and individual counseling in their internship placement.

 

 

Feedback from Our Trainees

 “Working alongside supervisors and licensed counselors with clients was one of the most valuable aspects of the training program.”

“Showing a video in weekly video group supervision was so hard, but was also the most illuminating thing.”

“I learned so much watching you work with that (difficult crisis situation)”

“I love working with Naropa students!”

“Being a part of the training team was a reparative experience.”

 “Thank you so much for giving me a firm foundation for clinical work now.  I know the things I learned here will help me throughout my entire career.”

“You (supervisors) really walk the walk.”

“Thank you for always having my back.”

 

 

What We Are Looking For

We are a competitive site that seeks counselors in training who are humble, warm, and emotionally and psychologically mature.  Our trainees need to be open to clinical challenges, client and supervisor feedback, organized, warm and empathic, and able to add to the team.  We seek trainees who are vested in career development, and who have some experience working in the helping professions.  Trainees who wish to expand and deepen their effectiveness by providing one-on-one counseling, outreach, groups, and education within a structured training program are welcome to apply.  Trainees who desire integrative supervision and value the support of a comprehensive training program benefit from working with us.  

 

Duration of Commitment

Our Master’s Training Program for Internship is a 600 hour program.  The Master’s Training Program for Practicum is a 200 hour program.  Interns commit to at least 20 hours per week for 9.5 consecutive months.  Practicum commit to 10 hours per week for 9.5 consecutive months.  These figures are what most state licensing boards require.

Trainees are expected to fully commit to the training experience with us at NSCC.  All trainees are expected to anticipate and plan, discuss with supervisors, and resolve any conflicting responsibilities including the start date, commute time, conference attendance, class schedule, other jobs, child and elder care, etc., prior to the placement beginning.  Due to the nature and pace of our clinical work and the need to be in regular communication with one another, flex-time is not possible, nor are partial internships or practicums.

The Internship and Practicum commitment extends from Aug 1, 2019-May 15 2020.  Practicum trainees who complete their Practicum training year with us successfully will be asked to return as Interns the following year.

 

Hours of Operation

The traditional business day for the Counseling Staff at Naropa Student Counseling Center is 9:00 am-5:00 pm Monday through Friday with an hour closure from 12 pm to 1 pm for lunch and meetings.  All staff, including trainees may schedule their clients, supervision, research, paperwork, etc. as they see fit during the days and times they are scheduled to be at the center.  All trainees agree upon their semester schedule after registering for classes and prior to engaging in the clinical placement. 

 

Work Culture and Work Flow

Hard work, motivation, openness, team-ship, and self-care are valued in our team.  We believe trainees can challenge themselves without being stretched too thin, and there is not an expectation that trainees take on every opportunity.  However, there is an expectation that trainees are motivated and available for client contact hours.  We’ve found that past trainees often get too stressed when they take on more client hours than their program and we require.  In general, the values of the training team include hard work, humility, interest in contributing and being a part of a healthy and professional team, and dedication to learning and growing as a counselor.   

One of the benefits and realities of working at a small university is the ebb and flow of the academic year.  We are incredibly busy during the fall semester and it is not uncommon for folks to need to put in extra hours during this period.  There is a nice academic break during between semesters, as well as time off during spring break.  Practice days each semester give us a chance to take a wider view of the university and participate with the whole university.  There are many opportunities, both formally and informally, to learn and contribute to the Naropa community during one’s clinical placement.

 

Expectations Regarding Balance

Trainees are responsible for maintaining the quality and quantity of their individual caseloads and documentation and engaging in learning through individual, group, and video supervision.  Parallel Process group and our Trainings with Outside Presenters provide further opportunities for learning.  While these activities comprise is the majority of the work week, trainees also have hours for discretionary activities.  Trainees can use these hours to pursue reading, training opportunities, marketing, and other areas of interest to support their emerging counselor identity and practice with clients.  Sometimes discretionary hours are dedicated to clinical paperwork and planning.  Sometimes balance requires putting a project on hold while focusing on clinical work or administrative duties.

 

Goal Setting, Feedback and Evaluations

The early phases of our program involve more goal-setting, didactic content, co-facilitated clinical experiences, and structured direction from clinical supervisors.  As the year progresses trainees are expected to develop mastery within the basics of administrative and client-care, and grow to respond more skillfully to clinical issues and complexity, take on increasing responsibility, and self-directedness.

Our use of feedback and evaluation tools is an important part of the process.  Trainees have the opportunity to receive feedback weekly in individual and group supervision sessions and practice giving and receiving feedback in weekly group video supervision.  Trainees elicit feedback from clients formally and informally throughout the therapeutic relationship. 

Trainees are provided copies of the forms we use for their formal evaluations when they first join our team.  We walk through these together, orienting trainees in the areas they can expect to learn and be evaluated.   Goal setting helps supervisors and trainees collaborate to focus on areas competency and skill. 

Evaluations are intended to provide trainees and their school program with feedback about the trainee’s progress as it relates to our expectations and observations of their work.  We have trainees self-evaluate to help increase ownership and self-awareness, and to support career-long reflective practice.  Evaluations offer trainees to observe supervisors model the feedback process.  This further contributes to trainees’ development of feedback skills- which we see as critical in the profession, whether in work with clients, colleagues, or hierarchical relationships in the placement or post-graduate practice. 

Each trainee formally self-evaluates at three points through the training year, including about two months in, at the half-way point, and in a final evaluation.  They submit this self-evaluation to their supervisor, who also evaluates them.  The supervisor’s evaluation is then reviewed and shared with the trainees’ graduate program faculty.  Finally, evaluation of our program and supervisors by trainees helps us further refine our client services, training program, and contributes to the development of our staff.  Evaluation is a two-way process and is intended to be illuminating rather than critical for all involved.

 

We hope that you will consider working with us during your clinical placement.  Our trainees play a critical role in supporting Naropa students, enjoy our population and the length, depth, and breadth of the work, and appreciate the structured and developmental approach we take.

We so appreciate all that our trainees offer to clients on their Naropa Journey.

Rent Assistance

EFAA: Emergency Family Assistance Association
http://www.efaa.org/ 303-442-3042

Provides rent assistance in conjunction with receiving case management through their agency. Only serves women, families and disabled men. The Basic Needs Program helps with housing costs (i.e., rent payments to prevent eviction, utility payments to prevent shutoff), food, minor medical needs (such as prescriptions and eyeglasses), and essential furniture (such as beds). Clients are also assisted with access to other sources of assistance, such as government benefits.

Bridge House
http://boulderbridgehouse.org/what-we-do/   303-442-8300

Our rental assistance program helps our clients and supports our working poor clients by staying in their home.

OUR Center
http://www.ourcenter.org/content/services/basic-needs   303-772-5529

After an intake interview, professional caseworkers and trained volunteers provide emergency food, transportation, utilities, furniture, minor medical prescriptions, referrals for emergency shelter, and homeless-prevention help, including rent and utility assistance. Although services in the Basic Needs Program are typically provided in times of crisis, agency staff, work in partnership with families to help them regain self-sufficiency.

Call our Intake Office at 303.772.5529 for appointment if your needs include rent, utilities, shelter, and/or prescriptions. Our priority is to assist families with children who are residents of the greater Longmont area. Assistance to households without children may be provided after a thorough assessment has been done and as resources permit.

If you or someone you know needs help because of an abusive relationship, call our 24-hour crisis hotline: 303.444.2424.

The emergency shelter program offers a safe shelter at a confidential location for individuals and families who are seeking refuge from interpersonal violence and/or elder abuse. We welcome all people who are abused, including anyone traditionally silenced because of their ethnicity, race, religion, age, ability, income level, sexual orientation, transgender identity or who are gender non-conforming. During your stay, we can provide case management, community referrals, group and individual counseling services, safety planning, and help meeting basic needs such as food and clothing. Our advocates will work to create an individualized case plan that can assist you beyond your stay at our emergency shelter.

Boulder Outreach for Homeless Overflow

BOHO opens emergency warming centers in the facilities of faith communities whenever weather conditions dictate. Members of the homeless community are not turned away due to lack of space or intoxication (as long as they remain cooperative) so that those in need have a warm, safe, dry place to sleep. The status of emergency warming centers (that is whether open or closed) will be on our FaceBook page. You may also call 303.605.8919 to learn the emergency warming center status for any given day.
