Schedule an Appointment

When contacting us to schedule an appointment, please know that providing as much availability as possible will help to insure you meet with a counselor as quickly as possible.  Please be aware that, because of the high demand for services, during peak times there is often a one to two week wait for a counseling appointment.  The wait for a psychiatrist or nutritionist appointment is usually three to five weeks.
