How To Connect With a Counselor

Students are not assigned counselors. We recommend you find a counselor you feel comfortable with and schedule follow-up appointments with the same counselor.

  • Online Appointments: 60 minute counseling appointment via Zoom, an online meeting platform that works on computers, smart phones, or tablets. A zoom account is not necessary to participate. Visit Zoom Help Center for video tutorials.

  • Telephone: 60-minute telephone counseling session. Call our Student Services Center Team at 408-270-6475.
