Counseling at CCC
At Clackamas Community College, we take mental health and wellness seriously. That's why we offer free counseling services to our students. You can find the Counseling Department office on the second floor of the Wacheno Welcome Center.
Counseling Virtual Events
Wednesdays, 4-5:30 p.m. | Join on Zoom
SMART Recovery is an addictions-focused anonymous self-help group. SMART stands for Self-Management and Recovery Training. The CCC SMART Recovery group is open to anyone who would like to learn tools for dealing with addiction and, in general, offers good coping skills and training that would benefit most people. All are welcome.
Counseling is available
CCC counselors are still here for students and offering secure, confidential appointments remotely.
The counseling department is continually updating their service offerings based on OHA guidelines. Please contact us to discuss alternatives if you would like an appointment but telehealth does not meet your needs.
Winter term hours
Most college services are available Monday through Friday throughout fall, winter and spring terms.
For a detailed list of current student services hours, including remote and in-person services, visit the Student Resources webpage. For information and updates on the return-to-campus status and COVID safety protocols, visit the Return to Campus webpage.

Meet our counseling team
Communication between you and Clackamas Community College counselors is confidential as required (except as limited by law). Generally, information may not be disclosed to another person or agency outside of the Counseling Department (including parents, teachers, or staff) without your written consent. Among the legally and ethically determined exceptions to this policy are:
- Counselors need to disclose information necessary to prevent you from acting on plans to hurt yourself or others.
- Counselors need to report suspected abuse of children, animals, older adults (65+) or people with disabilities (both developmental and acquired) to the appropriate authorities, regardless of whether the abuse is current or historical.
- Counselors need to disclose medically relevant information if you have a potential medical emergency.
- If your records are subpoenaed and a judge court orders the release of these records, counselors must comply with this order.
- The CCC counseling staff members work as an integrated unit, which means we consult with each other.
