How do I schedule my initial assessment?
The first step is to schedule a brief assessment appointment. The brief assessment appointment is a 15–20-minute phone call. You can schedule by phone or online.
If you don’t see any appointments available when scheduling online or the online appointment times don’t fit your schedule, simply call 512-471-3515 (option 3) Monday – Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. to immediately speak with a brief assessment counselor.
