How to Schedule
Initial appointments to see a therapist may be made online or by telephone, Monday through Wednesday, 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM, Thursday 8:00 AM to 4:30 PM and Friday 8:00 AM to 3:30 PM When making an appointment online, you will be asked to complete our initial paperwork prior to seeing options for available appointments. The telephone number for CCS is 317-940-9385.
Your First Appointment
During the first appointment, your therapist will allow you to share information about yourself and also ask questions to better understand your concerns. Initial appointments generally last 45-50 minutes.
After the initial appointment the CCS staff will meet to determine what type of treatment will best meet your needs (individual therapy, group therapy, or a referral to another provider). You will receive a call from the staff regarding your next step typically at the end of the week in which you did your initial appointment.
If you are seeking advice or information rather than ongoing therapy for yourself, you may also set up a one-time consultation session or meeting with a therapist. Students often come in seeking support on how to help friends/roommates with concerns or to inquire about what kind of services/resources are available for a particular issue, such as sexual assault, alcohol and drug problems, or eating disorders. We can also consult with you to provide additional assistance with referrals off campus if you cannot get your needs met using our online resource, ThrivingCampus.
