CAPS Intake


Our Mission

The mission of CAPS is to provide a confidential, safe, supportive, and trusting environment that empowers students to develop the awareness and skills that will enable them to be "citizen leaders who are prepared to make a positive contribution to the common good of society."

Counseling services are offered to help students achieve academic and personal success and experience more effective, responsible, and satisfying lives.  Our services are available to any actively enrolled Longwood student (residential student, commuter student, distance learner, on-line student, graduate student) who has paid the comprehensive fee.  If an enrolled student is unable to present to CAPS, the Director will provide an initial phone consultation and appropriate referral.

  • Socially Succeed

    College is a time of excitement, challenge, and growth—socially as well as academically.  It may be difficult to feel comfortable at times.  Loneliness and fear are common, normal feelings that many students experience.  Succeed Socially is a group designed to help make the process of forming friendships a little easier.  Each week, the group will focus on learning social skills to enhance and build friendships and explore new ways of being socially engaged on campus.

    The group meets on Mondays starting at 4:00pm in CAPS's group room.  If you are interested in the group and/or have questions, please contact Dr. Davino at 434.395.2409.

The center is directed by Dr. Maureen J. Walls-McKay and consists of two other professional providers and supervised graduate interns.

    Established in 1972, the center provides individual and group counseling to Longwood students, and a training program for graduate-level students. In addition to individual counseling sessions, the center offers crisis intervention for students facing psychological emergencies.

  • Stress and Anxiety Management Group

    This group is designed for people who have symptoms related to stress and anxiety and are seeking support and learning methods to cope with stress.  This is a support group where students who suffer from stress and anxiety can attend and get support and constructive feedback from other students who suffer with problems related to stress/anxiety.  Counselors also will tailor and present  psychoeducational information on how to manage stress/anxiety at the  request of the group.    The group is a great place to get support from counselors and fellow students for issues related to stress/anxiety.

    The group meets on Thursdays starting at 3:30pm in CAPS's group room.  If you are interested in the group and/or have questions, please contact Dr. David Davino at 434-395-2409.

  • A.C.T. Group

    This group was started as an office collaboration between Counseling And Psychological Services and Office of Disability Resources in the Fall '09 and will continue in the Spring '15 semester. The group is open to any student who has officially registered with the Office of Disability Resources. The group meets on Thursdays starting at 3:30pm in the Office of Disability Resources conference room.

    Advocacy, Communication, and Transition are at the core of what we discuss in this support group format. The students who have committed to each other for once a week for the better part of two semesters have found the group to be therapeutic and comfortable enough to openly discuss ideas and conflicts in their lives and process them with each other.

    For more information contact the Office of Disability Resources.
