Let's Talk Drop-In
If you have a brief concern, or just want to see if counseling could be helpful, use our Let's Talk drop in option (not for crisis--for crisis appointments visit the counseling center).
Single Session Option
A single session appointment provides students the opportunity to meet with a CPS counselor for support regarding a specific concern. It is meant to be a one-time only appointment and is ideal for students who have determined they are not in need of ongoing counseling services. Students who elect this option will not complete the intake process required for beginning on-going services. To schdule, callCPS for an appointment or visit our main page and select the "Single Session" appt button at the top. If you try to schedule online and it says "none available," please call and we can schedule you manually.
