Your first appointment at the SCC will begin with a 60 minute intake appointment with a staff clinician. The clinician will assess the nature and urgency of your concern so that we can help to make the most appropriate next step to assist you.
When you contact our office you will be scheduled for a 60 minute face to face intake appointment. This is a specific time reserved for you. It is important that you complete our initial forms before your scheduled appointment time. Please arrive 15 – 20 minutes prior to your scheduled appointment in order to maximize your time with the clinician. You must be finished with this paperwork before your appointment. If you are not, your face to face time with the clinician will be reduced. During your appointment you will be asked a number of questions and have the opportunity to discuss your personal situation and ask any questions.
At the end of the session, appropriate options will be reviewed with you. These could include an appointment for an individual therapy session or a referral to other resources on campus or the community that can address your concerns.
Crisis and urgent appointments are available when needed. SCC is a short term counseling center. If you need or are interested in a longer term therapy relationship, we can advise you of other resources/services in the community.
