Individual Therapy

CAPS offers time-limited individual therapy for graduate and full-time undergraduate students at Saint Mary's College. The initial consultation appointment will help clarify if short-term individual therapy is recommended. If longer term or more specialized therapeutic services are needed, referral to a community professional will be made.


Psychotherapy can alleviate psychological pain, help you know yourself better, and create opportunities to build healthier relationships. You and your therapist will work together to get to know you better, paying attention to your cultural context. This endeavor can bring to your awareness important unnoticed or unnamed patterns of thinking and behaving that have been causing you pain or difficulty. Most importantly, sharing your story with someone who empathizes can bring great relief.
