CAPS promotes the psychological health of students and the campus community through affirmative therapy and other multi-culturally informed services, in order to empower students to participate fully in campus life.

Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) is committed to helping students meet the challenges of life during college, graduate and professional school by encouraging healthy personal choices and balanced perspectives.

Students seek counseling and psychological services for a wide variety of reasons, including depression and anxiety, life crises, identity issues, relationship concerns, difficulty with loss or other life transitions, sexual choices and concerns, problems related to alcohol or drug use, as well as many other issues of concern. We treat each student with sensitivity, providing affirmative therapy that values diversity and respects the individual.

Our professional team of licensed clinicians provide time-limited individual and group psychotherapy for students and referral services for those requiring specialized or on-going care. These services are provided free of charge to students currently enrolled.

All clinical services are confidential.  No information is released without the student's consent, unless required by law. Additionally, the staff provides consultation, crisis intervention and educational workshops to the campus.
