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, and are free of charge for eligible students. 

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. Contact us or come by the office to see what is currently being offered.

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.
