To get started in counseling, students typically have a brief (15-minutes) telephone triage appointment with a CAPS staff member to assess a student's needs and to direct you to the most appropriate counselor.
Please call the CAPS front desk to schedule this telephone triage appointment with a counselor.
During the triage appointment the counselor will assist you with determining appropriate next steps. This might include any of the following:
- a 45-minute in-person counseling appointment (generally available within 1 - 2 weeks)
- emergency counseling (available each weekday 10am - 5pm for urgent concerns)
- group counseling
- a referral to other resources
For questions or to set up a phone triage:
