The Center for Assessment and Psychological Services (CAPS) provides assessment, consultation and counseling/intervention services for the pediatric through adult population.  

CAPS is open Monday through Friday (8:00am-5:00pm) across RU Fall, Spring and Summer sessions. Appointments in the evening (5:00-7:30pm) or when RU is on break are available by request.  

We have a team-based approach to our evaluation and therapy service delivery, with advanced level graduate psychology students providing services under the direct supervision of licensed RU psychology faculty. CAPS has a dual mission:

  • providing quality psychological services to the RU community and regional community members at reduced fees; and
  • providing on campus clinical and research training experiences for graduate psychology students in our pediatric/school psychology and counseling psychology graduate programs.

CAPS Licensed Faculty Supervisors:

Emily Dove, Assessment Director of CAPS, Adjunct Professor, Psychology Department


Polices, Fees and Payment

Clients do not have to be affiliated with RU. Clients are provided services by appointment only—we  do not provide walk-in, crisis or emergency services. Given graduate student involvement in service delivery, we also do not provide services to clients that are currently suicidal or violent or those seeking evaluations for legal purposes (e.g., custody issues). CAPS has a sliding scale and payment plans for evaluation and counseling services. We provide services at a reduced fee—often 2-3 times lower than private practice evaluation services.  We do not bill insurance companies. Clients may wish to contact their insurance company to determine if they can be reimbursed directly for all, or a portion, of our fees. We only accept cash, check or money order at this time. Please contact us directly for more information about current fees and polices.
