CAPS office visits are just $10.00 a session. However, no student will be turned away for inability to pay. Please talk with your therapist to see if you qualify for a reduced rate. There is no cost for group therapy, crisis therapy, and support group sessions.

Psychiatric Consultation

Counseling and Prevention Services partners with Student Health Services and a psychiatric medical doctor to provide psychotropic medication services to enrolled students. The current standard of care for mental health conditions includes medication management and therapy. Therefore, a medication consultation is coordinated through the individual counselor and reserved only for clients engaged in counseling.

Psychological Assessments

Our counseling staff administers and interprets a wide range of assessment instruments.

Interest, ability, values, and personality may be formally assessed in support of psychological and/or career counseling.
