Counseling & Psychological Services (CAPS)

Beaufort Marine Lab

We recognize that students studying at the Duke Marine Lab may have a difficult time driving to Durham to access CAPS services. To assist students seeking counseling services, we have identified therapists in Beaufort and the surrounding communities who are available to meet with Duke students for brief counseling services. These services are available through the student health fee you pay when you register for classes and will support up to six counseling appointments with one of the therapists CAPS has identified. Should you decide to continue counseling after these six sessions, you will be responsible for subsequent fees. Many students utilize their health insurance to cover these charges and you may wish to discuss this with the counselor at the time of your initial appointment. 

You can access these referral resources by contacting CAPS at 919-660-1000. Please ask to speak with Liadainn Gilmore, the Referral Services Coordinator. Should you prefer to seek this information from an administrator at the Marine Lab, you may contact Rebecca Smith, the Associate Director of the Marine Laboratory or Katie Wood, Program Coordinator for Duke Marine Lab at 252-504-7508.
