Be prepared to discuss your goals with your therapist. Goals often include changes you would like to experience. Changes can include the elimination of thoughts, feelings, or behaviors which are preventing you from reaching your goals or developing specific skills that would aid you in obtaining your goals. Clients often find it helpful to write their goals down before their first appointment.

We take protecting your privacy very seriously. Our staff of therapists operates under the professional conduct standard of the California Board of Behavioral Sciences. Our services are confidential, meaning that we will not disclose information about your treatment to anyone who is not directly involved in your care without your written permission, or as required by law. Confidentiality includes not disclosing information about you or your treatment to your parents or guardian.

CAPS staff adhere to state laws and ethical standards that require all client information disclosed within the session to be kept confidential. To provide effective service, clinicians or psychiatrists may consult with other CAPS staff and qualified medical providers at the Wellness Center. Any other release of information requires the client’s written consent, except where disclosure is required or allowed by law (e.g., where there is a reasonable suspicion of abuse of children, dependent adults, or elderly persons; where the client presents a serious danger of violence to another person; where the client is likely to harm themselves; or when required by valid court order). No mental health information will appear on a student’s academic records, including any reference to whether or not CAPS services were ever used unless the student specifically requests the disclosure of this information.

ACC is committed to providing early intervention for students whose actions pose a concern to personal health and safety or the safety of the university community. The function of this group is to identify students of concern within the university community and develop individualized plans of intervention for each student. The Director of CAPS participates in the weekly meetings and is there to consult and does not release any information about students without an authorized release of information from the student.
