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 at least a two or three week wait for a counseling appointment.  The wait for a  nutritionist appointment is usually one to two months.
