Counseling Center

How to Schedule an Appointment

To begin meeting with a counselor, you must first schedule an appointment. Due to state guidelines, the Counseling Center can only serve students who are physically in Washington State. For out-of-state students, you can schedule an appointment with My SSP at 866.743.7732. If you are in state, you may be able to schedule an appointment online (may require you to open in a private browser window) or by calling 206.543.1240.

This appointment will occur via secure Zoom. It will be an opportunity to discuss your current concerns. We will work with you to develop a collaborative plan for next steps. These steps may include effective coping strategies, a follow-up appointment, or referral to other resources. To get the most out of your appointment, please use a private location.

You will receive an email the day before your appointment with a link to the Zoom meeting and instructions on how to complete forms required for your appointment. We ask that you complete these forms no later than one hour before your appointment. (If you haven’t completed your forms by then, one of our staff members will contact you at the number you provided upon scheduling. If the forms are not complete by 30 minutes before the scheduled appointment, we will need to reschedule it.)

At your appointment time, you will meet with a counselor over secure Zoom. This appointment typically lasts 45-50 minutes.
