Starting therapy... where to look? And the catch... I'm only here for the summer? Then what? More inside.

I'm a college student, recently went through a breakup, and, at this point, think talking to a professional would be in my best interest (for a variety of reasons). The problem is, my internship for the summer is on the opposite side of the country as school. Is it worth it to even start some kind of therapy here (Seattle area)? I'm not sure what the normal lead times for getting appointments and such are. And I'm not sure if it would be a good idea to get used to a therapist here for a a couple months then have to find a new one at school.
Another question, I'm a dependent on my parent's plan. Is this something that I can do without their knowledge initially? I would be paying the copays, but I'm assuming they'd be notified/receive some kind of bill. Not doing it via insurance is almost certainly worlds out of my price range.
