Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS)


Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) provides counseling services for students who have experienced gender and power based violence (sexual assault, intimate partner violence and stalking).  These experiences can significantly impact your life and how you may begin to think about yourself and respond to relationships and situations. Seeking counseling can help you to sort out your feelings about the event(s), assist you in making decisions about what you would like to do next and help you begin the healing process. 

Individual Support: Making the decision to come to counseling is the first step in the healing process for many students. In collaboration with a therapist, a student can explore their feelings about their experience and move forward in a safe and supportive environment.

Group Support: Joining a group can be an empowering and transformative experience for survivors of sexual assault. Groups provide an opportunity to connect with other survivors who have had similar experiences, helps students learn new ways to cope with the aftermath of a sexual assault and enables students to witness people in various stages of the healing process.

Sexual Assault Survivors Support Group: This group is a space where female identified survivors can reconnect with their power in community with other survivors. The group follows an open support group format and participants determine group topics each week. The group meets for 1.25 hour each week.
