LGBTQIA+ Counseling Services

While all CAPS counselors have training and experience working with LGBTQ+ students, sometimes it’s important to know your counselor is queer-identified. Our LGBTQ+ counselors are knowledgeable about intersecting and non-binary identities, polyamory, the coming out process, experiences of homophobia and transphobia, adjustment to college, family concerns, trauma, self-esteem, and much more.
