Center for Counseling and Psychological Services--Let's Talk

By Brian Petersen, February 3, 2023

CAPS-Let's Talk 2023

Let’s Talk is a service offered by The CAPS Counseling Center  that allows Ithaca College students to check in via telehealth for an informal and confidential consultation with a CAPS counselor. Counselors can listen to a specific problem, provide insight, support, and introduce you to what it’s like to speak to a member of the CAPS staff. The brief consultations do not require that you make an appointment and are available by phone or by Zoom.

Interested in a Let's Talk Session?

  • Let's Talk hours will be held from 12-2 PM on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays for the spring 2023 semester. Wednesdays 12-2 might be added later in the semester.  
  • Let’s Talk will start up again on Tuesday January 16, 2023 and will continue through Final’s week on May 12, 2023.  
  • Let's Talk will NOT be held during Spring Break (March 13-17).   
  • Other times will be available by request. Use the "I'd like to specify another day and time" option and submit your availability on the form.  Please note: an alternate day and time might not always be possible. 
  • Let’s talk will remain primarily a same day “drop-in” service and not by appointment.  And will be offered first-come, first-served. 
  • Consultants may not begin new conversations with students within the last 15 minutes of a shift.  
  • The demand for Let’s Talk might vary greatly from day to day and week to week.  So, it is possible that the Let’s Talk counselor may not be able to meet with everyone who requested a specific day. If this happens, the Let’s Talk counselor will email students who were not reached that day and offer other options (referral to another Let’s Talk day, other CAPS services, etc.).
  • Important: Due to unforeseen circumstances, there may be times where Let's Talk will be canceled or the counselor for that day may be different from who is listed here.  Regardless, you will be contacted if Let's Talk has been canceled or changed.
