Providing Evidence-Based Assessment and Therapy Services
The Clinical Psychology Center, the training clinic for the University of Pittsburgh’s Clinical Psychology program, provides a range of outpatient psychological services to the local Pittsburgh community. Doctoral students in our program provide time-limited, evidence-based assessment and therapy services under the direction of a licensed psychologist or mental health professional. Our clinic utilizes a reduced fee, pay-for-service model (using a sliding fee scale based on client income), and does not accept commercial insurance or Medicare/Medicaid.
Our clinic serves children, adolescents and adults. Our services tend to be skills-based and time-limited, and we actively track client’s progress to ensure that they are making meaningful treatment gains.
