Community Partnership with Citrus Counseling Services (CCS)


In order to provide more convenient access for students who need ongoing or more specialized mental health care, the University has established a partnership with a local agency, Citrus Counseling Services (CCS).

CCS was founded in 1978 as Christian Counseling Services. Today, however, it is known as Citrus Counseling Services because it has expanded its scope of practice to include a variety of non-faith-based services.  The organization has earned a strong reputation, in part because of its diverse staff of more than 40 clinicians, including U of R alumni, who serve people of all race, gender, sexual orientation, and economic status.

Initial Referral Form


You must inform the CCS intake staff that you are a University of Redlands student.

Services: Starting Fall 2021, and depending on CDC health guidelines, CCS will provide telehealth appointments and/or in-person services; with the option to have CCS staff on campus to provide therapy.  This arrangement with CCS will support students who need care outside the Counseling Center's scope of services (e.g. long-term therapy) ​and provide convenient access to counseling services.

Although it is not currently in its portfolio, CCS leadership is working to provide psychiatric support for students as well.  CCS licensed therapists take most health insurance, including the University’s insurance, and there is a sliding fee scale for unlicensed therapists.

Accepts insurance if seeing a licensed therapist: Aetna, Cigna, UBH, Loma Linda University Risk Management as well as other major health insurance. They will verify and bill your insurance if you provide the needed information.
