About CAPS

The counselors in Counseling and Psychological Services are available to support enrolled Saint Peter’s University students in their personal, professional, and educational growth. We are staffed by experienced, licensed clinicians trained to assist with a variety of issues commonly affecting college students. Our clinicians have worked with students presenting with stress, depression, anxiety, family/relationship difficulties, substance abuse, eating disorders, academic challenges, sexual assault and various other concerns. We are also aware of the impact the pandemic has had on people’s mental and emotional health.  We anticipate that some will experience additional challenges as we transition into a more socially involved lifestyle, and we are ready to assist.  

Counseling and Psychological ServicesCAPS offers students personal attention, through individual, couple or group counseling modalities. We also provide crisis intervention, case management and, when appropriate, referrals to other resources on and/or off campus. Additionally, CAPS provides workshops, presentations, a mental health & wellness library, discussion groups, and gatekeeper trainings to educate community members on mental health issues. Our office offers a supportive environment where confidentiality is maintained according to federal laws; please contact us if you would like further information.

CAPS takes an active role with the student population by sponsoring numerous educational programs, Health and Wellness fairs, and relaxation events, and also collaborates with campus partners on various other events and activities. Past programs included topics focused on: substance use, stress and time management, assertiveness training, relationship issues, study skills, anger management/conflict resolution, optimism and hope, resilience and grit, and communication skills. If there are additional workshops of interest please contact us.
