Counseling and Psychological Services

Individual Counseling

Students may participate in individual counseling with one of our psychotherapists.  Many students find they experience significant relief after 3-5 sessions, while others attend therapy on a more regular basis throughout the academic year.  However, in order to meet the needs of all Wesleyan students seeking our services, we cannot accommodate requests for long-term intensive psychotherapy.  If a student is interested in this mode of treatment, CAPS can help locate a community provider.  Please call 860.685.2910 to schedule an appointment.

No Show Policy

A $10 no show fee will be assessed to any student failing to notify the office of cancellation within 24 hours of appointment. The fee will be billed directly to student accounts after a second missed appointment.  Students will be reminded of the policy after a first missed appointment via email. 

Urgent Concerns

CAPS has limited availability to provide same-day appointments to students in crisis.  In the event of acute emotional distress, students should call 860.685.3143 and clearly state they are experiencing an urgent situation.  If an emergency occurs after business hours or on the weekend, students should call 860.685.2910 and ask for the on-call clinician.
