Making an Appointment

Students interested in utilizing the free, confidential counseling services provide by the CCC should first make an appointment for an initial Intake session.  The Intake session allows the client and counselor to discuss the issues and formulate a plan of action going forward.  To set up an Intake appointment, call the Center's main number at 301-738-6273, or request an appointment online.  Walk-In appointments are not available at this time due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
