Welcome to CAPS!

The Ithaca College Center for Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) houses a team of licensed and license-eligible professionals who promote and fosters mental health, emotional well-being, and a sense of belonging. At CAPS, we understand that these are not one-size-fits-all matters. We welcome students of all identities, including all ethnicities, racial identities, genders, gender expressions, cultures, religious beliefs, sexual orientations, national origins, ages, sizes, physical and mental abilities, and/or socioeconomic statuses. Our goal is to work collaboratively with you to address the issues and experiences that are important to you. CAPS offers free, confidential resources based upon a model and philosophy of care called Stepped Care 2.0, a multifaceted approach that values individualized services.

Depending on individual assessment, professional best practices, and the realities of CAPS’ Scope of Practice, we can recommend any number of options represented on the Support Wheel. CAPS' adaptation of Stepped Care allows for flexibility, respects that needs change over time, and minimizes the overall wait-time for services.
