Simply stated, counseling is any relationship in which one person is helping another person to better understand and solve some problem. Friends and relatives provide a type of counseling, as do academic advisors, teachers, and many others. The staff at CAPS differ from others who may offer counseling because of their extensive training in psychology and human behavior. They have a broad range of experience working with many different situations.
