Scheduling

If you'd like to begin services at the Counseling Center, you can call M-F from 9am-4:00pm to set up a brief 30 minute triage. We will have a clinician call you as soon as possible. During the triage, you and your clinician will decide next steps, which may include attending group, scheduling an Initial Assessment, referrals to other on or off campus resources, and/or being added to our waitlist (if applicable). If you have questions about this process, please contact the Counseling Center at 502-852-6585 or email

Triages and urgent consultations will be provided via phone or MS Teams until further notice. Please call or email us with questions or concerns.

Please note that urgent consultation services are provided on a first come, first served basis. Our busiest time is 3-4pm. Please call as early in the day as possible to allow time to complete paperwork and receive a callback from a clinician. We may have to call you back on the following day for if there are several students ahead of you.
