CAPS Counseling Staff

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.

Career Counseling Assessment and Library

The Career Counseling Library is a unique collection of books, files, directories and electronic resources staffed by a professional staff who will help you explore majors, careers and graduate programs.

Psychiatric Medications and Psychiatry

Medications often can be helpful to students struggling with depression, anxiety and other emotional concerns. We have a strong commitment to helping students understand their difficulties and to offering a range of options.

Our psychiatric clinicians (psychiatrists and nurse practitioners) can meet with students to determine which medications might be helpful and to recommend a course of treatment.

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

Prevention, Education, Outreach

Outreach is about connecting with the campus community to increase college mental health through awareness, education, and stigma reduction.

We actively engage students, faculty, staff and parents in creating a healthy campus environment and preventing mental health problems. We also do all we can to connect with students who do not utilize tradition counseling.
