To schedule an appointment with a psychiatrist, psychologist or therapist please call (909) 621-8202. All appointments are scheduled in advance unless in the event of a psychological emergency. Services such as intake appointments, individual and group therapy and psychiatric evaluation and follow-up are available at no charge to students. Please note that we do not have a pharmacy on site and prescription drug costs are the responsibility of the student. For no-show or late cancellations (less than two hours) a fee of $15 may be applied.

Specifying Therapists

If you prefer to see a particular therapist, inform the receptionist, who will work to make a timely appointment. Please note that a requested therapist may result in a longer waiting period before your first appointment. If you come in for an intake appointment and you are dissatisfied with your initial therapist for whatever reason, you may contact the receptionist to accommodate a change.

Psychiatric Consultation

Psychiatric consultation is available. There is no limit on the number of visits allowed for medication management.
