News and Announcements

An occupational therapist offers guidance by:

  • Making good habits and routines, and setting realistic goals
  • Making data-driven strategies to meet your goals

A counselor, on the other hand, can help you:

  • Learn how to cope with stressful situations and difficult emotions
  • Become more flexible and responsive in how you see yourself and others
  • Understand yourself better

What we have in common:

  • Individualized and client-centered
  • Scientifically driven, evidence-based
  • Defined goals

Remember, you are not limited to one therapy or the other. You may utilize both services to address the same problem as the different frameworks and methodologies of each profession can complement each other. We encourage students to take advantage of all the resources Caltech has to offer!

Occupations are all the ways you "occupy" your time - this includes your classes, research, sleep, leisure, taking care of yourself, and more!

Some of the most common topics students work on in occupational therapy include:

  • Time management and productivity
  • Planning and organization
  • Procrastination
  • Getting better sleep
  • Low motivation

Occupational therapy focuses on:

  • Implementing practical strategies
  • Finding routines that work for you
  • Feeling capable about what you do
