Making an appointment

Call the Counseling Center at 303-315-7270

Leave a message with your name and phone number. The intake coordinator will call you back to schedule an intake (first appointment) that fits your schedule. Intake appointment times vary Monday – Friday from 9:30a.m. to 4:30p.m. 



​Visit the Counseling Center in person

We are located in the Tivoli 454. Come by Monday-Friday between 10-4 and sign up for your intake (first appointment).

Appointment Process:​​

Arrive on time​

Computer forms take about 30 minutes to complete. These forms must be completed before you speak with a clinician. If you are more than 15 minutes late to a scheduled appointment, your appointment will need to be rescheduled.​

Intake Appointment

You will meet with a clinician to discuss your personal concerns and counseling services or other recommendations that may be helpful. The initial intake appointment is for information gathering rather than a therapy session and will last 50 minutes.​

After Your Intake Appointment​

If we are the best place for you to continue treatment, the Assistant Director will assign you a clinician (who may or may not be the clinician with whom you completed your intake appointment).​


Meet your Clinician​

You will receive a call or email from your clinician to schedule your first session. We can schedule appointments Monday – Thursday from 8-6 & Fridays from 8-5.

Receive the help you need​

We have a strength based, flexible, brief therapy model. When you are ready for these steps toward support, you can talk with your counselor for roughly 6-12 sessions.​
