About Us The Regis University Office of Counseling and Personal Development (OCPD) offers a safe and accepting environment to grow in self-knowledge and understanding and develop effective strategies for handling mental health crises and persisting problems. A professional staff of licensed and qualified psychologists and counselors provide both short- and long-term individual, couples and group counseling. The OCPD provides educational and process-oriented groups, workshops, and presentations designed to promote development in the areas of communication skills, dating and relationship issues, adjustment to college life, assertiveness training, and other relevant topics upon request. Our consulting psychiatrist, Dr. Kevin Cowperthwaite, is available on campus one day a week to our clients (upon referral from an OCPD counselor), for medication evaluation and short-term treatment. Commitment to Diversity: At the OCPD, 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 beings 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.
