Wellness & Counseling

We recognize and honor the college experience as an important time in life, and take a holistic view of supporting all aspects of our student's well-being.


All PNCA students have access to free and confidential counseling services.  PNCA has dedicated counselors available on-site and there are no session limits.  Our counselors provide a range of flexible short-term counseling services for students experiencing concerns such as stress, anxiety, academic difficulties, identity formation, support navigating oppressive systems, depression, problem solving, relationship concerns, adjustment, values clarification, and family conflict, among others.  We also provide dedicated case-management services for students seeking specialized or other care with off campus resources.  Our case-manager can help students secure referrals, navigate the insurance process, etc.  Find out moreinformation about the counseling services available at PNCA through Bishop Wellness Center.
