We aim to maintain the highest level of privacy while still making accessing care easy and convenient for clients. The appointment calendar is only seen by SCC staff.

Making an appointment is as easy as 1, 2, and 3.

1.  Determine which counselor you would like to set up an appointment with.

2. Click on the link next to the provider’s name which will allow you direct access to their calendar.

3. Select an available appointment from the provider’s calendar. You will immediately receive a confirmation email with a google meet link that you can use to meet virtually with your provider on the day of the appointment. In person appointments should be coordinated directly with your provider.
