Frequently Asked Questions

What services are provided?

Therapy is available to children, adolescents and adults and is provided for a broad range of problems including anxiety, depression, family problems, stress, child behavior problems, relationship problems, anger issues, ADHD, sleeping disorders, and adjustment to chronic health problems.

The CPC does not provide emergency appointments, psychiatric evaluations, medical supervision, chemical dependency treatment programs, treatment for serious mental illness or child custody evaluations. Because the CPC is a training facility, some selectivity is involved in accepting clients for treatment. For individuals who cannot be seen immediately, every effort is made to refer them to an alternative service provider.

Psychological assessments are available on a limited basis. Evaluations of learning and attention problems are most frequently requested. Fixed fees are charged for evaluations and vary according to tests administered and the examiner. 

Presentations and in-service training are available to University departments and community organizations through our Speakers Bureau.

Who provides services?

Most of our therapists are clinical psychology graduate students who are working toward their doctorate in clinical psychology. They work under close supervision of faculty members who are licensed psychologists. Some faculty members also see clients or conduct group therapy in the Center.
