What to Expect When Accessing Services

We commend you for taking the steps to access counseling at Mt. SAC's Employee Counseling Center (ECC)! It's a unique journey for each individual. Here is an overall summary of the process when taking the first step to see an ECC Clinician:

  1. Call, email or use the ECC website to connect with the ECC Administrative Assistant who will help schedule an in-person or virtual appointment. Any preliminary questions or concerns can be addressed during your contact with the ECC.
  2. Prior to your appointment, you will receive an email with important documents to review and sign.
  3. Once you have scheduled an appointment-
    1. In-person: Meet your Clinician in the ECC office in Bldg. 7 | Rm. 1107 (map)
    2. Via Zoom: You will receive an email with the Zoom login information
  4. Initial and follow-up sessions are 60 minutes in duration.
  5. Using a Short-Term model,  you and your Clinician will work and agree on targeted goals, next steps including a recommended follow-up appointment and information, resources, and referrals if applicable. 

Remember that we are here to support you! Mental health counseling is voluntary. You have the option to schedule a follow-up appointment at your discretion. For additional questions please call or email us.
