Services Offered to Community Members

Notification of Change in Counseling Services

The CU Denver Student and Community Counseling Center will temporarily close its physical location, but will be providing remote, online counseling services, effective Monday, March 16th, due to the developments related to the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19). This is following the protocol of the University of Colorado system as well as the Centers for Disease Control’s (CDC’s) recommendations for exposure. The health and safety of our students, faculty and staff is our highest priority as we coordinate our planning and response. 

We will be offering the following services via telehealth/online video calls:

  • Intake appointments 
  • Crisis sessions to address acute mental health crises
  • Regular individual therapy sessions with your ongoing counselor

In order to access these telehealth services, you will need to do the following:

  • Electronically sign a consent form agreeing to engage in online counseling services
  • Have a stable internet connection and access to email in order to receive the encrypted Zoom invitation to meet with a counselor

The CU Denver Student and Community Counseling Center provides counseling services to community members and Denver Public Schools (DPS) students and their families at a nominal fee.

  • Individual counseling
  • Couples counseling
  • Children and adolescents
  • Families

Counseling sessions are led by practicum students in the graduate program in the CU Denver School of Education and Human Development (SEHD) and are supervised by licensed counseling professionals. 

Testing assessments are also available.
