Since opening on campus in the spring of 2004, Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) at Penn State York has been offering a number of psychological services for students from supportive treatment and referral services to assessment. Hundreds of individuals including students, faculty, and administration have benefited from CAPS free and confidential on-site services.
Evaluations completed by students benefiting from the services provided have informed psychology consultant Cynthia Cox, Ph.D. in developing a center that provides services at times that suits student schedules. Workshops in test anxiety, time management, and other subjects have been offered by CAPS staff as well as guest speakers for the student body.
So what is new? After seven years of developing the center, Dr. Cox is moving on to other opportunities. Dr. Stephanie Binter, LPC, Psy.D., will continue providing quality services to the Penn State York community. The campus is extremely grateful for her services.
Dr. Binter graduated in 1999 with a bachelor of arts in Psychology from Millersville University. In her bachelor’s program she completed an internship with the Lancaster Center for Abused Women. She developed a counseling program and provided individual counseling for children from abusive households. Dr. Binter graduated from Millersville’s Clinical Psychology program which she attended as she was employed as a director of Day Treatment working with court adjudicated youth.
Dr. Binter also completed an internship at Pennsylvania Counseling Services (PCS) where she provided outpatient psychotherapy with individuals, families, and couples. She remained at PCS through the beginning of her doctoral program. She graduated in 2008 with a doctorate in Clinical Psychology from the College of Osteopathic Medicine. While in the program she gained experience working with a wide range of emotional and behavioral issues, as well as psychological assessment, forensic and psycho-educational evaluations. Currently she is a self-employed provider working out of a local psychology practice.
CAPS remains committed to providing quality care to the students, staff, and faculty at Penn State York.
