Meet CAPS Staff

Our clinical staff is composed of licensed mental health professionals, including psychologists, social workers, professional counselors, and psychiatric providers. In addition to permanent professional staff, CAPS has several therapists in training including psychology doctoral interns, graduate psychology practicum students and psychiatry residents from the UVA residency program. Our diverse group of trainees and staff allows for a dynamic cross-disciplinary exchange of ideas. We are strongly committed to meeting the highest standards of clinical care as well as training for future independently practicing mental health providers.
