About Us OCPD offers a safe and accepting environment to effectively develop awareness and strategies to handle crisis situations and persisting problems and to grow in self knowledge and understanding. A professional staff of licensed and qualified psychologists and counselors provide individual and group services which include short-term counseling, long-term counseling (no session limits), referral to consulting psychiatrist where appropriate, and assessment of more severe psychological concerns. Our consulting psychiatrist, Dr. Kevin Cowperthewaite, is available on campus once per week to evaluate and provide short-term treatment to the OCPD clients. Services are free to Regis College students, Master's of Biomedical Sciences students, Doctoral Physical Therapy students, Doctoral Pharmacy Students, as well as Traditional, Accelerated and CHOICE Nursing students. At the Office of Counseling and Personal Development, the term "diversity" affirms our faith-inspired commitment to build an inclusive community that values the dignity and contributions of all our members. In this community, all human differences thrive in a learning environment characterized by the Jesuit traditions of mutual respect and the pursuit of justice. Age, gender, race/ethnicity, class, disability, sexual orientation, religion and other human differences contribute to the richness and vitality of our living community.
