The debt counseling session can be conducted in-person or over the phone.  No appointment is necessary.  Scheduled appointments are also available if you prefer.

If you're stressed about credit card debt, you may qualify for a GreenPath Debt Management Plan.  Or, you may just need advice and money management tools for paying your debts on your own.
