The clinic offers a broad range of outpatient mental health services, which include individual therapy, family therapy, couples therapy, and group therapy. The clinic aims to provide convenient and affordable psychological services to area residents. A broad range of behavioral, emotional, cognitive, developmental, lifespan, health related, family-of-origin, and interpersonal issues can be addressed. Therapeutic approaches utilized by clinic supervisors include behavioral, cognitive-behavioral, family systems, insight-oriented, interpersonal, feminist, and psychodynamic orientations.

We provide services to adults, adolescents, and children. The types of issues addressed include but are not limited to:

  • Depression and other mood disorders
  • Anxiety disorders (e.g., phobias, post-traumatic stress)
  • Abuse and trauma
  • Relationship problems
  • Stress and coping
  • Self-esteem
  • Social skills deficits
  • GLBT and sexuality issues
  • Disordered Eating
  • Family difficulties
  • Some substance use disorders
  • Health and wellness
  • Vocational and career exploration

In addition, the clinic offers Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT), which is an empirically-supported treatment for young children with emotional and behavioral disorders. Therapists work with family members to improve the quality of the parent-child relationship and change parent-child interaction patterns. In PCIT, parents are taught specific skills to establish a secure relationship with their child to promote the child’s pro-social behavior and decrease negative behavior.

All cases are reviewed to determine appropriateness for the clinic. What the clinic does NOT provide:

  • Emergency or walk-in appointments
  • On-site psychiatric evaluations or medication management
  • Child custody evaluations or psychological evaluations in cases involving litigation
  • Services for chronic substance use and dependence
  • Services for medically involved eating disorders
  • Court-ordered treatments
  • Services to individuals with serious mental illnesses who are non-compliant with medication
  • Services to individuals currently on probation or parole

The clinic is not a crisis center and therefore is not equipped to meet the needs of individuals who require 24-hour support. If we are not able to meet your needs you will be referred to a center that is better able to assist you.
