CAPS Mission


As a member of the Saint Mary's College Student Life Division, Counseling And Psychological Services (CAPS) supports the mission of the Saint Mary's College Community by contributing to the Liberal Arts, Catholic and Lasallian tradition of the college.  We strive to support the independence and emotional well being of the student body, assisting individuals in successfully negotiating the complexities of college life and meeting the developmental challenges of emerging adulthood, while maintaining confidentiality.

The CAPS staff is dedicated and committed to a respectful understanding and honoring of the social, emotional and cultural contexts represented by each individual student.

CAPS provides individual and group counseling, emergency and crisis intervention, prevention-oriented outreach and educational presentations, consultation and training. CAPS maintains strict confidentiality, establishes a professional atmosphere, and holds to the highest clinical and ethical standards.

In response to the changing needs of the Saint Mary’s College Community, the CAPS staff is committed to training, life-long learning and its own professional growth and development.
