How to Make an Appointment
Emailing, using your RFUMS email, to email@example.com is the preferred method of contact. You can use Virtru for added security when emailing. You can also call us on our confidential voicemail at 847-578-8723; please always leave a message.
Please inform SCS clinicians of the following information when emailing or calling:
- First and last name (please spell)
- Geographic location of current residence (address, state, zip code)
- Two best means to connect with you (i.e. phone number/s, RFUMS email address)
- Indicate if you need a Phone Intake Appointment (to request on-going therapy appointments with an assigned clinician) or a Solutions Appointment (one-time appointment)
After providing this information to SCS, you will be contacted with scheduling instructions to initiate desired service.
We offer in-person and tele-psychotherapy appointments. In-person appointments are available at the Student Counseling Service location. You will be required to follow current guidelines related to screening and/or mask-wearing. Tele-psychotherapy appointments are offered using Zoom, a HIPPA compliant platform, and will be aligned with the laws pertaining to clinical practice in the State of IL. Prior to your first tele-psychotherapy appointment, you will receive information pertaining to your appointment and your clinician’s Zoom link. Virtual platforms require a browser on a computer or device with a camera and microphone.
Student Counseling Service (SCS) offers limited flexible scheduling tele-psychotherapy to accommodate student schedules.
