Counseling & Brief Therapy
To get started or talk to a counselor today, visit our remote triage service or call us at 520-621-3334.
CAPS offers brief one-on-one counseling, couple's counseling, and group counseling for students dealing with problems like anxiety and depression, eating and body image, alcohol and drug concerns, family, friend, roommate, and relationship problems, academic problems and life decisions, and crises and trauma.
Get started today.
If you've never been seen at CAPS or it's been 6 months since your last CAPS appointment, you can get started with counseling with a triage appointment. Your Triage counselor will briefly assess your concern, and together you'll decide on specific follow-up/treatment services (such as group, counseling, or psychiatry) on- or off-campus. If you've already been seen at CAPS within the past 6 months, simply call for an appointment (520-621-3334).
Not sure if you have a problem?
Everyone has ups and downs in life. Bad days, funks, the blues...they happen. But, sometimes, they can linger, affect the way you think, act, and feel over a long period of time, or even get in the way of just living your life. Not sure if this is "just a rough patch" or something more? Take one of these mental health screenings or speak with one of our counselors in triage.
Why brief counseling?
We’ve found that short-term therapy is quite effective with college students, especially when problems are dealt with at an early stage. It’s not unusual for significant change to occur in just a few sessions, even for problems that seem insurmountable at first.
What happens if I need more than short-term counseling?
Some difficult or long-standing problems may not be completely resolved in short-term treatment, but brief, solution-focused therapy could help facilitate subsequent personal efforts to change. In cases where long-term therapy seems best, CAPS staff will assist the student with a referral to an off-campus resource.
Late arrivals, rescheduling, and cancellations:
If you're more than 15 minutes late for your scheduled counseling appointment, you may need to be rescheduled to the next available appointment time.
To cancel or reschedule a CAPS appointment, call before 4 pm the day before your appointment or there will be a late cancellation charge billed to your account.
