Many students experience anxiety, depression, problems in their relationships, or discomfort and dissatisfaction in their lives. Oftentimes, this can stem from previous experiences and relationships which unknowingly impact our present situation. When you need help with a personal problem that you feel is interfering with your life and your happiness in some way, counseling is available to help you clarify the issues, sort out the options, and make changes.
Saint Mary's Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) feels strongly about working in a collaborative manner and as a result each decision about the counseling process will be discussed as sensitively and as openly as possible. Your intake counselor will get to know you and ask information about your reason(s) for coming to the counseling center. They will take time in these first meetings to talk about counseling and will share what they feel would be the best way to proceed. If, after talking with your intake counselor, it is agreed that CAPS would be beneficial, you can begin to make regular appointments.
