We seek to combine the contemplative and modern clinical worlds to offer cutting edge and creative mind-body- spirit approaches to emotional health and healing.

Entering a new college can be accompanied with multiple transitions, opportunities and challenges. Naropa's counseling services provide psychological, emotional and developmental support as you move through your student journey to support your growth and developing maturity.
