This can be a very stressful time and we at the Community Counseling Program wanted to let service members and their dependents know that we will remain open and functioning.  We will have a clinician on site each work day in order to accommodate walk-ins but also are available for telephonic sessions as well.  If you have any further questions or are in need of assistance, please feel free to reach us via email or phone.  Please be aware due to the fluid nature of our current events that you may receive a response more promptly by email and voicemails may be less frequently monitored.  We are here for you and your family!
