Group Counseling

Group counseling services for the 2021 Summer semester will be offered virtually via HIPAA-compliant Zoom. 

Counseling Services offers a variety of counseling, support, and educational groups each semester. Participants benefit from the mutual support and learning that occurs from interaction with others who have similar concerns. Unless otherwise noted, all groups will require a pre-group screening. For more information  or to schedule your pre-group interview, please complete the CAPS Phone Request form and indicate which group you are interested in attending.

If you have questions email the group facilitator or
