Welcome to Counseling and Psychological Services

The mission of Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) is to support the academic goals of the College through assisting students with personal challenges that interfere with their academic progress. We encourage students to attend to all of their developmental needs, whether they be academic, personal, physical, interpersonal, social, or spiritual. Toward this end, we provide an environment that is safe, confidential, and supportive. Our work is guided by the ethical and practice standards of our professions, with the goal of providing the best services possible.

 CAPS is accredited by the International Association of Counseling Services, Inc.
