Counseling & Psychological Services

Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) helps Duke students enhance strengths and develop abilities to successfully live, grow, and learn in their personal and academic lives.  We offer many services to Duke undergraduate, graduate, and professional students, including brief individual counseling/psychotherapy, consultation, couples and group counseling, assistance with referrals, and more.

First time to CAPS?  Please drop in between the hours of 9 am to 4 pm Monday-Friday and ask to speak with a counselor. No appointment is needed. You will meet with a counselor on a first-come, first-served basis. The earlier in the day you come in the better. Please plan about an hour for your visit.
