Make an Appointment

June 22, 2023

An occupational therapist offers guidance by:

  • Creating beneficial habits and routines
  • Implementing data-driven strategies to meet your goals
  • Setting realistic 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!
