Since the Center for Community Counseling is not an emergency service, there are a few steps involved in being set-up with a therapist. The process may seem lengthy, but we want to be sure we are a good fit for you and we are matching you with an appropriate therapist. To facilitate the process you can follow these steps:
Step 1 – To Learn if CCC is best for you, consider the following:
Do you have OHP? If yes, you may be better served by a OHP provider where you can receive services with no out of pocket expense.
Are you uninsured? If yes, you may be appropriate for services. Keep reading for more information.
Are you underinsured? If yes, you may be appropriate for services. Keep reading for more information. Many have insurance but the co-pay, deductibles, or lack of providers with openings that accept their insurance, keeps them from being able to access therapy. *Please note, you will not be able to use your payments at CCC towards your deductible.
Are you a student? If yes, contact your student services department. You may have access to free and confidential services through your college or university.
Do any of these describe you? If so, you may be a good candidate for services with CCC.
• I would like to try therapy without needing a mental health diagnosis or label.
• I am not mandated to treatment by any agency or court.
• I am available for weekly sessions, Monday-Friday between 9am-5pm.
• I am able to pay a weekly sliding scale fee of $5-$40 for my therapy appointments.
• I do not need emergency mental health services to maintain my safety.
*Please note, we are unable to do mandated counseling, substance abuse counseling, or assist with situations of active intimate partner violence.
For support with substance abuse, please contact Serenity Lane or Willamette Family. For situations of domestic violence, please contact The Hope And Safety Alliance (aka Womenspace). For 24 hour services please contact White Bird at 541-687-4000 or visit Hourglass Community Crisis Center at 71 Centennial Loop, Suite A, Eugene, OR 97401.
Step 2: Call for an initial phone screening.
Call us at 541-344-0620. After a short phone interview that allows us to assess if you are a good fit for our services, you will be given an intake time/date or a referral to a more appropriate service.
Step 3: Fill out your intake paperwork.
Once you are scheduled for an initial intake session, we will send you an email with information about your intake as well as links to two HIPAA compliant online forms we need you to fill out. The email will also include a link to pay your one-time, $20 intake fee. Payment is due by the date of your intake.
Step 4: Attend your intake appointment.
Once you have filled out your forms and paid your intake fee, an intake clinician will meet with you for a 1.5 hour intake appointment prior to being matched with a counselor for weekly sessions.
Step 5: You will be matched with a counselor.
CCC therapists may be licensed counselors, clinical social workers, or psychologists. CCC also has mental health professionals working towards licensure who receive ongoing supervision of their work with clients. Your therapist may be a graduate student working towards their masters or doctorate in a mental health field. Currently, CCC is pleased to be able to offer weekly sessions online, by phone or in person.
