Wondering you have ADHD?
If you want to discuss whether psychological assessment is appropriate for you, the first step is to schedule a free, 30-minute assessment screening with an HCC staff member. During this free consultation, you will discuss your needs, assessment cost, time frame, how to get on the assessment wait list, referrals to medication providers or other assessment clinics outside the HCC, and any other resources that you might need. To schedule this consultation visit, simply call the HCC front desk at 303-871-2205
How much does it cost to see a counselor?
The cost to see a counselor depends on if you have paid the Health and Counseling Fee (HCF) and if you are enrolled in the Student Health insurance Plan (SHIP). If you have both the HCF and SHIP, most HCC services do not require an out-of-pocket cost or copay.
For example, if you have paid both then you can get up to 20 counseling sessions free of cost. Please see the Service Fees page for more information on fees for specific services.
