Meet your counselor

Below is a video that will provide you with a chance to hear more about the CARE program from your college CARE counselor.

Cassy (pronouns: she/her/hers) is a Counselor in the Counselors in Academic Residence (CARE) Program, a program that provides mental health services in academic offices to facilitate students’ academic and life goals. She provides clinical services to the College of Liberal Arts students and is available to provide consultation and prevention/outreach services to staff.

Cassy’s areas of professional interest include multiculturalism, anxiety, depression, and trauma. Her approach includes an integration of CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy), DBT (Dialectical Behavior Therapy), and a person-centered framework with trauma-informed care. Cassy is also fluent in Spanish and can provide bilingual services to students who may feel more comfortable speaking in Spanish.

CARE Clinical Services

All services are currently provided via Telehealth.

  • Students are primarily referred by COLA staff or faculty. Students interested in learning more about resources to support their mental health can contact Cassy directly.
  • Cassy will assess student needs and offer appropriate services (e.g. short-term counseling, resources and referrals, crisis intervention, and groups)

Trainings and Workshops

  • Offered to students and staff
  • Topics vary (e.g. test anxiety, stress management, perfection, assisting student in distress)


  • Available to consult one-on-one and in meetings/groups. Please contact Cassy for more information.
