Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS)

About CAPS

Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) helps students meet the personal challenges associated with identifying and accomplishing academic, career, and life goals. Our services include short-term counseling for individuals, group counseling, career development counseling, referral services, psychoeducational workshops, and crisis intervention. Read more about CAPS.

When to Ask For Help

Sometimes personal problems require more assistance than can be found within your own circle of support.

CAPS offers counseling for students who are struggling with issues such as family and social relationships, romantic relationships, life transitions, sexuality, grief, stress, sexual assault, anxiety, loss of motivation, or depression. If you have any of these concerns or would like general professional assistance, please come in or call for an intake appointment.
