CAPS is a place where you can talk confidentially with a licensed therapist who respects and understands your needs.
After an initial walk-in session, students are matched with an individual counselor with whom they will collaboratively develop a plan to address their concerns and goals.
We offer counseling on a variety of concerns including - but not limited to:
