Welcome to Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS)

We are here if you need to talk...about anything.


CAPS has moved temporarily so renovations of our Student Center space can take place. We have relocated to the Thompson Home, located at 4756 Cass Ave, across from the Hilberry Theater, near Old Main. IF YOU NEED HANDICAP ACCESS TO THE BUILDING, PLEASE CALL AHEAD TO MAKE ARRANGEMENTS.

We will return to our home in the Student Center Building in August of 2016.  Thank you in advance for your patience, and we do apologize for any inconvenience.  We will keep the same phone number throughout (see below).

CAPS promotes a culture of understanding and growth through professional collaboration among the dynamic staff, which consists of licensed professional counselors, psychologists, and social workers. CAPS is fully accredited by the International Association of Counseling Services
