Our Mission

          Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) provides a variety of clinical services designed to meet the many different concerns experienced by CSUF students. The clinical needs of students range from normative developmental changes to more serious emerging or on-going mental health concerns; from a disrupting life event to a life-threatening crisis; or from supportive counseling and psychoeducation to ongoing psychotherapy. Our licensed clinical staff is specifically trained in college student mental health therapeutic approaches and committed to providing professional services that meet the specific needs of undergraduate and graduate students. CAPS takes pride in being an agency that operates from multicultural, multidisciplinary, and multi-theoretical perspectives. Our clinical staff and trainees represent a wide range of individual and social identities and experiences; are a combination of Licensed Psychologists, Licensed Marriage and Family Therapists, Licensed Professional Clinical Counselors, Certified Life Coach, Board Certified Psychiatrist, Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner, and Licensed Clinical Social Workers; and have training in numerous treatment modalities and theoretical perspectives. This rich diversity in people and practice provides opportunities for CSUF students to connect with a clinician and receive treatment in a manner that is a fit for both the person and their clinical need.

          At Cal State Fullerton Counseling & Psychological Services, we are committed to providing a safe space for addressing ethnic, cultural, gender, sexual orientation, ability, and other factors that impact our students’ abilities to thrive, succeed, and matter, with a particular focus on how these factors impact our students’ educational experiences and relationships. We value and prioritize our students, staff, and faculty from all backgrounds and walks of life.
