Make an Appointment

Make an appointment with healing

When you’re ready to make an appointment with us, you’ll need to come to the Counseling and Psychological Services office to complete some paperwork and schedule your initial assessment. At that point, we’ll make recommendations for treatment and schedule you for future appointments or testing.

If you are in crisis or require immediate support for concerns such as suicidal thoughts, difficulty completing daily tasks, or a recent event that threatens your safety or that of others, we also offer same-day walk-in appointments. CAPS staff is available 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday. For after-hours crisis management, call 911 or contact one of these emergency resources.

In addition to arranging the assessment testing for learning and developmental disorders, the CAPS staff can also help schedule your pre-meeting with group counseling facilitators. Appointments are not necessary for our Mindfulness Meditation or Got Your 6 workshops.

In times of high demand, or if your concerns fall outside the scope of our services, CAPS may refer you to other mental health care providers. We may also make a referral if you need more immediate care. Regardless of the circumstances, we encourage you to contact us if you are in need.
