Time Limited Individual Therapy

Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) at George Mason University offers a variety of psychological services designed to assist students in resolving issues that cause emotional distress and interfere with personal goals and academic success.

The first step is to complete an Initial Consultation appointment during which you will speak briefly with a clinician about your concerns and collaboratively identify how best to address your needs. This may involve referrals to resources on- and off-campus and/or to services offered by CAPS, including group therapy, skills-based workshops, case management, time-limited individual therapy, time limited psychiatry, and learning services.

Due to high demand for clinical services, individual therapy at CAPS is time limited and dependent on treatment needs and availability. While some concerns can be effectively addressed in a time limited format, it is also quite common for student concerns to require longer term care. When this is the case, clinicians assist students in connecting to the appropriate community services to ensure they receive the best treatment.
