Hi, I'm Nichol, your Native American Student Affairs (NASA) embedded counselor.

How I can help:

As an embedded counselor for Native American Student Affairs (NASA), I provide services similar to what you might find at CAPS. These services include an array of mental health services including consultation, short-term counseling, and groups/workshops. Services may vary at different cultural centers as we try to listen and cater to student and center needs. We are present at the cultural center 2½ days a week and the remainder of the week is spent providing services at CAPS North. My days at NASA are all day Monday and Tuesday with the morning on Friday.

I will be available for consultation and drop-in hours with students. More details coming soon! In the meantime, here's how you can reach me:

“Get your education, no one can take that from you.” My great-grandfather told this to my grandma while she was attending the boarding schools.

Services accessed via the cultural centers with the Embedded Counselors will be free.

  • Individual, single session, and short-term counseling.
  • Mental health services consultations.
  • Community mental health referrals.

What to Expect

You're not broken, you are starting a path to healing. And I believe you are deserving and worthy of an unbiased, safe, and productive opportunity to process your experiences. As your NASA embedded counselor, it's my mission to support you along your path.
