Individual Counseling and Treatment Approaches

We offer evidence-based psychotherapies for a number of adult concerns, including:

  • Depression and anxiety in adults
  • Difficulty with regulation of emotions
  • Problems with perfectionism and procrastination
  • Relationship problems
  • School and career difficulties
  • Confusion or concern about sexual identity or preferences
  • Dealing with a traumatic event
  • Recovery from significant loss
  • Transitioning to, or preparing for, a novel environment

We provide counseling to individuals as well as couples experiencing mental health issues or dealing with the pressures at different stages of life.

One-on-One Counseling

If you’re experiencing emotions and behaviors that you have not experienced before or that are out of character for you, we may be able to help. We specialize in treating mood disorders, such as anxiety and depression, but can also help with building resilience to stress, treating adult ADHD, post-traumatic stress disorder, and many other challenges you may encounter in life. We will work with you to perform an assessment and to work out a treatment plan that works for your life.

Relationship Issues

Couples counseling and psychotherapy for relationship problems can be helpful for couples who engage in frequent conflict or unsatisfying communication patterns, have power or control struggles, experience betrayal, have sexual difficulties, have trouble maintaining relationships during life’s transitions, or who are experiencing other difficulties in their relationships. Our clinicians work with couples to work on relationships and work toward resolving problems in relationships. We offer counseling and therapy for married and non-married couples.

Treatment Approaches

The University Psychological Clinic is a clinical teaching facility. Similar to a teaching hospital, where doctors-in-training are overseen by a licensed professional, sessions are supervised by senior clinicians with specific expertise in problem areas and methods of treatment. Clients are asked to allow observation of the session by secure closed circuit television or video to facilitate the learning and supervisory process. This allows us to provide you with the best services possible.

We also offer psychiatric consultations and referrals to community providers.

Evidence-Based Psychotherapies

The University Psychological Clinic offers outpatient services that are informed by established research in the fields of psychology, social work and psychiatry.

Our approach to assessment and treatment considers the biological, psychological, and social functioning for each client. This allows us to tailor evidence-based treatments to individual needs. We offer psychotherapy treatments for common psychological problems that impact: mood, emotion, behaviors, interpersonal functioning, adjustments to work and academics.

The Clinic uses an integrated theoretical model to provide the most effective treatments to address a range of client symptoms and concerns. Treatment is planned between the client and their therapist and considers many aspects such as the diagnostic measures, client goals and preference.
