Referral information is based on providers voluntarily submitting their information to the NC State University Counseling Center referral database. These resources are not affiliated with the University, and the Counseling Center does not endorse or bear responsibility for services provided by individuals/agencies listed.

The above list of clinicians is generated based on student preferences, presenting treatment needs, insurance coverage and availability. We, of course, would like for you to be satisfied with the off-campus treatment you seek. If you have any feedback about a provider in our database, please contact the Counseling Center at 919-515-2423 and ask to speak to one of our Case Managers to inform us about your treatment experience.
