Welcome to Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) at CSP
College can be a very exciting and also challenging time for students. It can provide many opportunities for students to pursue their academic and personal goals, make new connections, and discover their future path. However, it may also involve various stressors along the way. Sometimes, these stressors can accumulate and become difficult to manage without support.
To help support our students, there is now a CAPS counselor conveniently located within CSP. The CAPS counselor is available to provide supportive mental health services for CSP students as well as information about additional supports, when needed. The counselor is available by appointment only. All services are free and confidential.
Typical reasons for seeking counseling may include:
- Relationship Issues
- Academic Concerns
- Family concerns
- Adjustment difficulties
How do I schedule my first visit?
Email Sharon Alvandi at firstname.lastname@example.org to request an initial consultation meeting. This meeting involves initial paperwork and consultation to determine the best way to meet your needs (45 minute appointment)
