Counseling Center

Individual Counseling

To begin meeting with a counselor, you must first schedule an appointment. This is an opportunity to discuss your concerns and develop a treatment plan with a counselor. 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. An intake appointment typically lasts 45-50 minutes.

To schedule an appointment, call us at 206.543.1240.


Students can request referrals for continued care in the community. If a student returns to the CC with the same presenting concerns, a referral for open-ended or longer-term care will be pursued. If a student is returning due to a new presenting concern or stressor, they may re-engage in short-term counseling if they and their intake counselor decide their needs can be appropriately met with another course of short-term treatment.
