Welcome to Psychological Services

Dear De Anza College Community, 

While you won't be able to visit us in person during the 2020 spring quarter, you can still reach us by phone and email.

We are offering 45-minute counseling sessions to students, either over the phone or online. Additionally, in order to support as many students as possible this quarter, we are waiving the 10-session limit. Any student who has previously been seen may request an appointment, and sessions will not count toward your 10-session limit.

Students can schedule an appointment by calling 408.864.8868 or emailing  You’ll need to provide your eight-digit student identification number, also known as a campuswide ID or CWID.

You can also consult our list of other mental health programs and these resource guides from

We know this is a stressful and uncertain time for many. Please take care of yourself, check your email inbox for notices from the college, and watch for updates on the college’s Online Spring webpage.
