What you can expect in an appointment

During your first appointment, we want to learn about you, any personal challenges you may be experiencing, and any mental health concerns you may have. Many students report feeling better after the first appointment. 

It's natural to feel nervous before a first counseling appointment. You're encouraged to be open and honest and ask questions if you have them. And, if you're not sure where to start, it's ok.  We'll help by asking you some questions, too. 

  • All appointments are confidential and free to currently enrolled students. 
  • Students who meet with us typically schedule somewhere between 1 to 6 appointments in a semester.
  • Some students leave with referrals to other resources at Normandale or within the community.
  • We may also provide you with some new strategies to try or mental health resources to review. 

We are here to help. Schedule an appointment online, or call 952-358-8261 for assistance. 


Call the Suicide and Crisis Lifeline at 988 or visit your nearest emergency room if you’re currently in a life-threatening situation or your safety is at risk.
