Counseling & Mental Health Services

We’ll help you find the right mental health service for you

Your first meeting with a CAPS counselor will focus on understanding what your concerns are and what you hope will be different as a result of connecting with CAPS. We will make recommendations for next steps based on this information and your unique situation.
