Although we provide a wide range of services for individuals and families, we do not provide services that involve legal cases, re-evaluations when school is involved, or concerns involving Child Protective Services (CPS). We are also not equipped to testify or provide custody evaluations or recommendations.
Preliminary Consultation and Appointment Policy
Prior to making an appointment, we require that all prospective clients schedule a free screening consultation. This meeting allows us to to determine if we can provide the desired services and if the prospective client would be a good fit. If it's determined that our clinic is unable to assist, we can provide referrals in the area.
All clinic services are provided by in-person appointment only. Sessions are typically offered once a week for 50 minutes per session. After your appointment has been scheduled, you will be be assigned a counselor trainee (graduate student). If you are unable to keep your appointment, please notify us as soon as possible. There is no charge for missed appointments.
Cost for Services
Fees for all Psychological Services Clinic services are set by a sliding scale based on family income and family size. Though services are not offered free of charge, we try to assess fees that are as affordable as possible for each client. Fees are due when the services are provided.
We affirm the unique identities of our clients, including their gender, age, race, national origin, marital status, sexual orientation, romantic orientation, religion, gender identity, or different physical or mental ability. In keeping with this commitment, any client who requires a special accommodation to utilize our services should contact our office ahead of time to receive accommodations.
