Here at CAPS, we strive to make our services timely and accessible. Making an appointment at CAPS can happen today. If you are interested in speaking with a clinician at Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) or learning more about our services, please call CAPS at 703-993-2380. The first step will be to briefly check-in with a clinician to discuss options for support.   If appropriate, we will then offer you an appointment to complete an Initial Consultation (IC). We aim to meet with students for Initial Consultation (IC) appointments on the same day that they contact CAPS.
