- Clinic Staff
Welcome to the homepage for the Pennsylvania State University Psychological Clinic. The Psychological Clinic functions with three primary goals in mind:
- Training of graduate students in our doctoral training program in Clinical Psychology
- Provision of psychological services to residents of Centre County and the surrounding area
- Conducting “state of the art” research in order to develop new and more effective ways of helping our clients cope with the difficulties they face
We provide services to all individuals regardless of race, gender, religion, ethnic background, economic status or sexual orientation.
Because we operate as the training facility for one of the leading Clinical Psychology programs in the nation, our professional staff includes faculty in Clinical Psychology, adjunct faculty, and staff psychologists and psychiatrists who hold clinical appointments in the Department of Psychology. These individuals hold doctoral degrees (Ph.D., M.D.) and are licensed to practice in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. They serve as clinical supervisors to the staff clinicians, composed of graduate students enrolled in the Clinical Psychology doctoral training program.
The Clinic is licensed by the Pennsylvania Department of Public Welfare as an Outpatient Psychiatric Clinic and accepts referrals from individuals and various community agencies. We operate, in part, as a contracted provider for Centre County's Mental Health/Mental Retardation and Drug and Alcohol Program and receive referrals from the Base Service Unit (BSU) in Bellefonte. Thus, some of our services are funded in part under an agreement with Centre County.
