CCA Mental Health & Counseling Services

CCA Mental Health & Counseling Services provides short-term individual therapy sessions per academic year (June-May) to currently-enrolled students.

Our licensed, professional therapists provide support to students to help them navigate stress, anxiety, depression, work & academic issues, family & relationship concerns, and many other challenges that life can present.

Our therapists will meet with students to determine if services through CCA are the best option, or if needed, assist students with referrals to community-based organizations and resources.

If you are interested in speaking with a therapist or scheduling an appointment, please complete the Online Referral Form. This is the best way to contact us.

CCA Mental Health & Counseling Services Hours

Therapy sessions are now offered in-person and virtually. Virtual sessions will be held on Zoom, through a secured link. In-person sessions will be held at one of our counseling offices on either the CentreTech or Lowry campus.

Because of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, students who request an in-person session will be asked to complete a health screening prior to an appointment.

While most appointments will be scheduled during traditional business hours, some evening appointments may be offered to accommodate specific needs.
