Individual Counseling

Individual counseling at Counseling and Prevention Services utilizes a brief counseling model in order to accommodate the many students who request our services. Brief counseling focuses on the issues or concerns at hand, for the resolution of a particular problem. If ongoing, continuous therapy would be helpful (or has been helpful in the past), CAPS will assist the student with the referral process to an outside provider.

To access individual counseling at CAPS, simply complete a Request for Services

Additional Counseling Options:
In partnership with the Virtual Care Group, CAPS has recently expanded clinical services to include free tele-therapy offered 365 days a year with 24/7 on-demand crisis counseling. These services will be accessible from anywhere on any device using one of the largest networks of licensed & accredited providers in the country. Students will have access to diverse service providers capable of providing therapy in native languages including English, Spanish, Mandarin, and American Sign Language.
