Counseling and Psychological Services assists students with personal growth and adjustment, mental health concerns, relationship issues, problem-solving, and career/academic adjustment. Services include individual,  couples/relationship, and group therapy; outreach programs; problem-solving consultations; and psycho-educational assessments.

Common problems for which students may seek help include: symptoms of depression and anxiety, adjustment challenges, stress, eating and body image concerns, problems managing emotional reactions, social/interpersonal conflicts, trauma/grief, behavioral addictions, identity issues, and loneliness. Services are confidential and free for students enrolled in 6 or more credits on campus. (There is a nominal fee for psycho-educational assessment.) 

Initially a brief consultation (30 minutes) will allow students to express concerns and explore options for the most effective intervention: self-help, workshops, group or individual therapy.  CAPS has a useful self-help library as well as a host of workshops (see workshop descriptions under Student Support Programs).  In addition, students may participate in groups designed to facilitate interpersonal process, men’s issues, women’s issues, emotional regulation skills and mindfulness.  All participants in CAPS programs are invited to complete anonymous feedback surveys to help us improve.
