Scheduling Your First Appointment

Click here to determine student eligibility for services, especially newly incoming students and summer availability.

** Consistent with medical and mental health service limitations across the nation, at this time please know appointments may take 2-3 weeks to be scheduled.  If you need a sooner appointment, please consider using TimelyCare‘s free mental health counseling services for students, available 24/7.

To schedule an appointment, call (253) 535-7206 to reach our Clinic Coordinator during business hours (8:00-noon, 1:00-5:00pm), Monday through Friday.  We will need some preliminary information from you to set up an appointment.  We do not schedule appointments via email as schedules can change between emails.

Your first appointment is a 30-minute Access Consultation appointment with a licensed psychologist, mental health counselor, or mental health counseling intern, who will listen to your concerns and work with you to determine next steps in supporting your care.  Each student is different, and we will work closely with you to determine the best course of action for your individual circumstance.  This may include an intake for ongoing support within Counseling Services, brief support for a current concern, or referral out for specialized support or longer-term therapy that falls outside of our scope of services.

Please also be sure to review and understand our Attendance Policy to avoid No-Show fines.
