Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS)


UNC Charlotte Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) allows students to identify their sex/gender identity in multiple ways including male/female/transgender and does not require students' identification be tied to the sex/gender that is listed on other university records.  Students are allowed to indicate that they "prefer not to answer" in response to questions regarding their sex/gender identity.

CAPS is able to provide individual therapy on a time-limited basis (up to 12 sessions per academic year).  When long-term therapy is indicated, CAPS will assist students in connecting to community resources.  All staff members at CAPS are able to provide therapeutic support to assist trans students with transition issues, as well as with any other current concerns including, but not limited to, relationship difficulties, mood/anxiety concerns, and academic concerns.  In addition, the following staff have a particular interest in working with trans students: Dr. Terri Rhodes, Dr. Jessica Groleau, and Dr. Erica Lennon.

For more information, visit CAPS or call 704-687-0311 to make an appointment. CAPS is located adjacent to the Student Health Center at the corner of Cameron and Mary Alexander.

We also recognize that some students may be interested in engaging in long-term individual counseling.  As such, please find below some recommendations of resources in the community for long-term services:
