A Message from the Senior Director

Welcome to the website for University of San Francisco’s Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS).

Each year more than 900 students seek assistance at CAPS for a wide variety of problems and concerns. Typical reasons for seeking counseling include depression, anxiety, substance abuse, eating disorders, family issues, adjustment difficulties, and relationship conflicts. Students are seen for short term counseling by the therapists on our staff. If the issues the student brings cannot be adequately addressed in our brief therapy model, we assist the student in finding an appropriate referral resource.

We are also committed to assisting those who are concerned about others, frequently speaking with friends, faculty, staff, and families who are worried about students. We can help understand what the problems might be and how the concerned other can intervene. All services are confidential.

Please review the web pages for CAPS and call us at 415-422-6352 if you have any further questions.

Barbara Thomas, Ph.D.
