Make an Appointment.

In response to the COVID-19 Pandemic our Counseling Services have transitioned to the following remote formats:

Telephone: 60-minute telephone counseling session. Call our Student Services Center Team at 408-270-6475 to schedule an appointment.

Online: 60-minute Online appointments are conducted via Zoom, an online meeting platform that works on computers, smartphones, or tablets. You don't need a Zoom account in order to participate. After you schedule your appointment, you will receive a Zoom meeting link with login instructions. Check in 10 minutes before your scheduled Zoom appointment to deal with any technology problems that might arise and wait for your Counselor in the virtual Waiting Room.
