Counseling

Satellite Offices

At times, it can be difficult for students to access counseling at the Tang center. In our effort to reach out to the campus, CAPS has expanded its presence on campus beyond the Tang Center.

Group Counseling

Many students benefit from counseling in a group format where common concerns can be explored.

Groups offer the opportunity to learn new skills and to share your concerns in a safe environment, by meeting with other students. Some groups are focused on a common concern, such as social anxiety, relationships transitions or mood problems. Other groups offer an opportunity for students with a common identity or concern to offer each other support
