College is a time filled with many changes, transition, excitement, and challenges. Most students, at one time or another, experience various personal, emotional, and/or interpersonal concerns. During these times, it can help to reach out for support from friends, family, academic advisors, spiritual supports, and professional counseling. At ECAPS, we strive to help students build on strengths and address these concerns in ways that allow them to make the best of their college experience. We offer free and confidential individual, couples, and group counseling, as well as consultation and workshops.
