Short-Term Therapy

Individual Therapy

At CAPS, we provide short-term individual therapy. This model focuses on specific goals set by the counselor and the student. Many of our students find that they are able to meet their goals within 4-6 sessions. Some students find that their needs go beyond what can be provided in short-term therapy. In that case, we also provide case management services, to help students connect to community resources that can provide specialized care.

Short-term therapy is one way of addressing the concerns that brought you into CAPS. Students meet with their counselor on a regular basis in order to address those concerns. Sessions are approximately 45-50 minutes, and typically start at the top of the hour.

We understand that sometimes events come up that may interfere with your ability to attend your appointment. If you are unable to make your appointment, please call our offices as soon as you are aware of the need to cancel. To the best of your ability, please try to cancel with at least 24 hours notice. Our policy states that if you miss two scheduled appointments by 'no show' or cancellation with less than 24-hour notice, you may become ineligible for counseling services for the academic year.

The best way to communicate with your therapist is by phone, or through the My Health Portal, where you can send a direct message to your provider. Email is NOT a preferred method of communication, as it is not secure. If your provider is attempting to connect with you, they will also reach out by phone or through My Health Portal.
