Sexual Assault and Relationship Violence Services

Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) is committed to providing confidential support to students who have experienced sexual assault, sexual harassment, dating/relationship violence, stalking, sexual exploitation, and retaliation. CAPS provides individual counseling, support groups, and emergency appointments. 

CAPS is here to provide support and space to process and cope with the various emotions and reactions that often follow, which may include:

  • Flashbacks
  • Difficulty concentrating and staying focused
  • Feelings of guilt
  • Negative self-image
  • Depressed mood
  • Disruptions in close relationships
  • Changes in sleep
  • Fear response to reminders of the event
  • Feeling like you are losing control

Keeping up socially, academically, and personally can be challenging on your own. The support of a professional can be a vital component to the healing process and in understanding your options and resources. A counselor can meet with you in a private, safe space where you can discuss and explore your own wants and needs.
