Students walking out of the Health and Wellness Center

Welcome to Counseling & Psychological Services

Counseling & Psychological Services (CAPS) offers counseling and therapy to help students manage, cope and grow with the stress associated with school and life. The primary goal of counseling is to help students develop the personal awareness and skills necessary to overcome problems and to develop in ways that will allow them to take advantage of educational opportunities at the University.

Therapy Groups

One of the best ways for people to learn about themselves and their concerns is within the context of interpersonal relationships. In group therapy, six to eight people meet face-to-face with one or more group leaders to talk about what is troubling them.
