Fall Groups

Anxiety Skills Group:
Feeling stressed or anxious? Overwhelmed by the demands of college life?
The anxiety skills group might be just for you! Come join us for a 4-week group focusing on understanding the origins of anxiety and learning the skills and techniques to calm your mind and body. For more information, please contact Counseling and Psychological Services (CaPS) at 610-902-8561 or e-mail Dr. Eliza Costoso at ec695@cabrini.edu .
*This group will start on Monday, September 25th at 3:00. Please note that all students must complete a brief interview prior to the start of group.

Life Changes Group
The start of a new school year can be stressful. And if you add a change in your life (coming to college for the first time, a death or loss, upcoming graduation, etc) this stress can feel even greater. If this sounds like you, you might want to try a new therapy group being offered by Counseling and Psychological Services. Dr. Jessica Burman will be holding a “Life changes” group for 4 weeks on Thursdays starting September 28. If you are interested or want to learn more, please contact Dr. Jessica Burman at jb3467@cabrini.edu or 610-902-8561. *Please note that all students must complete a brief interview prior to the start of the group.* 


Counseling Testimonials

“I love my counselor. She is always welcoming and caring and keeps the conversation going. After leaving, I always feel better.”

“Counseling through Cabrini has helped me to grow as a student and as a person. You can easily tell how much all of the counselors care about the students here.”

“I know I would not still be at Cabrini if it was not for their help. I am extremely thankful to them for all of their hard work and compassion.”

“I was shy at first about seeking help. I wasn't entirely sure of how I was supposed to go about setting up appointments, but the staff was very friendly, helpful, and patient.”
