Please download and complete the following PDF documents before coming for your first appointment. The CCAPS assessment is given to all students before session to gather information about the issues they would like to speak about in therapy. Please bring these forms and any questions you have to your first session.
If you have questions regarding the forms or do not feel comfortable in completing all or any of them, do not worry.
Just bring the forms with you for your first appointment. Your counselor would be more than willing to speak with you about your concerns.
