Counseling Services

OCPD services include individual, couples and group therapy as well as online screening assessments, medication management and referrals for additional resources.

Individual Therapy

Individual therapy sessions are one-on-one, confidential sessions with a member of our counseling staff to work through any kinds of issues a student may be experiencing. Our staff is professionally trained and has experience working with students in a wide range of areas, including depression, stress and anxiety, homesickness, eating disorders, sleep disorders, trauma, substance abuse and self harm. Individual sessions may be one-time or recurring. Please see below for specific types of individual appointments.

Couples Therapy

OCPD is happy to support students in providing couples therapy. Only one person in the couple needs to be a Regis student that is eligible for OCPD services. Balancing school and relationships can be a challenge as both require a lot of one’s time and focus. Partner relationships can be especially challenging to navigate during the demands of school. Couples therapy can take many forms including building communication skills, working on trust, exploring the future of a relationship, pre-marital counseling, and any number of other concerns that may arise in a partnership. Healthy and successful partnerships require growth and intentional work and we are happy to help.

Group Therapy

Students often find groups to be places of extraordinary support and healing. Groups offer a safe environment to get support from others and experience a level of connection that is often missing in our everyday lives. Therapy groups give students a chance to learn from others’ experiences, try out new ways of relating and better understand themselves and their relationships. In addition, some groups focus on building skills and focusing more in depth on a variety of concerns (i.e. trauma, depression, etc.).

Confidentiality, safety, and respect are a core part of all our therapy groups. We strongly encourage students to take advantage of a group opportunity while in school. OCPD group offerings differ each semester.

Medication Management

Whether you are coming to Regis already on medication or are considering starting medication, Student Health Services is a great option for initiating or maintaining your mental health medication. OCPD frequently collaborates with SHS in providing students comprehensive care. Some students may also find it helpful to maintain their care through their providers at home. OCPD also contracts with a community psychiatrist for additional consultation and medication support.

Mental Health Outreach and Programming

OCPD strongly values contributing to building a healthy and safe Regis community. We are happy to provide mental health educational programming at the request of Regis faculty, staff, and student groups across campus.

Our outreach services can be requested by sending an email to perscoun@regis.edu with your name, contact information, type of presentation or mental health concern you would like us to address, and dates and timelines. We ask that requests be made for groups of 10 or more and that they be placed at least two weeks in advance for consideration. We do our best to honor requests as often as time and resources allow.

Workshops and Presentations Examples:

  • QPR (Question, Persuade, Respond – Suicide Awareness and Prevention Training)
  • Time and Stress Management
  • Coping Skills
  • Substance Use Workshops
  • Self-Care and Life Balance

Online Screening Assessments

Ulifeline is an on-line resource for college mental health. You can find out information about various mental health topics, take anonymous questionnaires about various diagnoses and learn more about the resources available at Regis University and around the country. Learn more about Ulifeline.
