The Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) program is designed to help students enhance strengths and develop abilities to deal with the experiences of living, growing, and learning. CAPS offers individual counseling/psychotherapy, consultation, couples and group counseling to currently enrolled students at no additional cost.

Students have an opportunity to meet with a licensed Psychologist to address personal issues, work through challenges, and deal with the implications of growth and change. The CAPS program also offers psycho-educational workshops designed to enhance personal and academic skills and to teach more effective strategies for coping with problems.

Some of the concerns that students discuss with CAPS counselors are:

  • relating to family, friends and dating partners
  • academic performance
  • self-esteem
  • stress
  • depression
  • loss of an important relationship
  • issues related to sexual orientation
  • sexual assault and rape
  • concerns about your or another’s use of alcohol or other drugs

Students may call or come by the office to make an appointment. CAPS carefully adhere to professional standards of ethics and confidentiality. If a student wants information concerning his/her contact with the CAPS staff released, he/she must sign a specific written authorization.
