Choosing a Counselor

The counselors of the Julianna Poor Memorial Counseling Center are either licensed by the state, in the process of completing state requirements, or in their Master’s level work.

You can find out more about each of our counselors—as well as counselors at our other campuses—on the Meet the Counselors page. There you can click on individual profiles to read about each counselor’s background, passion and training. If you would like further information, our administrative staff will help you. Please have a couple of choices as some counselors schedules could be full or have a long wait to get in.

Scheduling an Appointment

When you call to make an appointment, we will ask for basic information and then we will send you an email with directions of how to log into our patient portal. This email will include your User ID and password. Please click on Patient Sign-in and enter your User ID and password provided. This will allow you to fill out the remaining information we need for your appointment including your adult intake form(s) and consent(s). If you are wanting counseling for your child, please fill out the Family Inquiry Form and our family administrator will contact you. Thank you for your cooperation to help us serve you with more efficiency.

To schedule an appointment, call 713.335.6462.
