COVID-19 Response - Updated 9/30/20

Due to concerns regarding the health and safety of our clients and staff, the PSC will remain physically closed for treatment services. We are currently accepting new clients for telehealth counseling (using video conferencing so that you can see and hear your therapist), including individual adults, couples, and children/adolescents. Click here for more information about our internet-based Parent-Child Interaction Therapy services. If you are interested in telehealth counseling services, please call or email us. We will complete a brief screen to ensure telehealth services are appropriate.

Please check out our free webinar series on mental health (see below).

We are now offering assessment services for adults only, which involve a combination of telehealth and in-person visits. During all in-person visits, staff and clients are required to follow social distancing and PPE guidelines. All clients will also be required to complete a health screening prior to their visit. For more information regarding our current policies and procedures, please call or email us.

Our priority at this time remains the continuity of care for our clients, training for our students, and the broader mental health and wellbeing of our community. So thank you for your patience and compliance with public health guidelines!
