Schedule Your First Appointment

If you are a new client or a returning client who has not been seen since July 1, schedule your Initial Consultation (IC) at the link below. You may also call (859) 257-8701 between 8 am - 4:30 pm, Mon - Fri to schedule.

For crises, call (859) 257-8701 and ask to speak to a clinician as soon as possible. The urgent phone line is open 24/7. Do not schedule online if in crisis. 

IC appointments are provided via telehealth using Zoom. If you prefer a phone session or need technology or a private space for your appointment, please call the Counseling Center after scheduling your appointment.

Do not complete additional forms until the day of your appointment. You will receive instructions and a Zoom link in an appointment reminder the day before your appointment. If you do not complete forms before your appointment, you will be asked to reschedule. 

The IC appointment lasts about 25 minutes and focuses on your current concerns and history of those concerns, coping skills and resources, and goals. Your clinician will provide information about helpful resources and services at the end of the session.

Eligibility (must be in KY at the time of the appointment)

  • UK students enrolled for six or more credits in spring and fall may be seen over the summer.

If you would like to schedule an IC appointment for couples/relationship therapy, can't find an available time, or have questions, please call (859) 257-8701 between 8 am and 4:30 pm, Mon - Fri.

After you pick an appointment time, your appointment will be scheduled. There is no additional confirmation.

You will receive an appointment reminder with all needed links the day before your appointment.

Please wait to complete additional forms until just before your appointment.

If you change your mind about an appointment, please cancel so that others may have that appointment time. To cancel an appointment, go to or call (859) 257-8701.
