Counseling & Psychological Services

Our Vision

At Mills Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) we envision a healing-centered community that continually returns to our values and critically examines our practices to seed justice in the mental health field.

Our Mission

We practice our values in three ways:

  1. Building cultures which honor therapists healing, intersectional identities, play, joy and rest;
  2. Developing an equity-based model of clinical services to Mills students; and
  3. Unlearning colonial psychology frameworks and engage in shared learning on values-aligned clinical practice and teaching philosophy.

CAPS provides individual and group counseling for students, as well as community circles, consultation, and outreach services to support students' wellness and success. Our professional staff wants to help guide you to find the services that are a good fit for your needs.
