LMU students may face an urgent concern that feels too overwhelming to wait for a scheduled appointment. During business hours SPS has an "on-call" therapist for in-person consultation. SPS hours for rapid response:
|Monday||10 am - 12 pm||1 - 4 pm|
|Tuesday||10 am - 12 pm||1 - 4 pm|
|Wednesday||10 am - 12 pm||1 - 4 pm|
|Thursday||10 am - 12 pm||1 - 4 pm|
|Friday||10 am - 12 pm||1 - 4 pm|
A need for a consultation with a therapist may arise when our office is closed. In these instances, students may contact the SPS main line at (310) 338-2868 and follow the prompt to speak to our After-Hour therapist. Those using the After-Hour service will receive a follow-up call the next business day from an SPS staff member.
