Getting Started

First-time Clients

Please schedule an intake appointment by calling 734.487.1118 or in person.

What Happens Next

  • Clients requesting intake appointments are typically seen within a week. The wait is sometimes longer depending on demand (most likely to occur in September, October, March and April). If you are unable to make your scheduled appointment, please cancel as soon as possible.
  • Initial appointments are 90 minutes including 30 minutes for intake paperwork. A counselor will ask you about your current situation and get a past history of treatment. You'll then discuss treatment options. Subsequent visits are 45–50 minutes. 
  • EMU students who are at least enrolled part-time may visit the clinic free of charge.

Who You'll See

Sometimes, one visit is enough. If ongoing counseling is desired, you may see the therapist you first saw or be referred to another, depending on your concerns and availability. The new therapist will be aware of your concerns before you are seen. You'll then remain with that person for ongoing treatment.

Returning Client

Depending on the time of year, you may schedule directly with your former therapist or you may be asked to schedule a meeting during your new client appointment time.

While You Are Waiting

We place a high priority on being accessible and aim to see you in a timely manner. Sometimes there is a longer wait (two to three weeks) for a counselor. We know it takes courage to come to counseling and waiting can be frustrating. Know we are doing our best to provide a minimal wait while maintaining the highest quality of care. Look into our online screening. Take advantage of these resources while you wait.
