Welcome to the Psychological Services Center (PSC) at the University at Buffalo.
Director: Sarah Taber-Thomas, PhD
The PSC specializes in the use of evidence-based treatments for children, adolescents, and adults. Our services are available to UB students, faculty, and staff, as well as individuals in the Western New York and Southern Ontario regions. We provide a broad array of psychological services, including counseling and therapy for individuals, couples, families, and groups; psychological assessment and testing; and psychoeducational workshops.
The tragic, racially motivated attack that occurred at the Tops on Jefferson Ave on May 14, 2022 has left our community reeling in sadness, anger, grief, and confusion. Following this tragedy, many organizations across our community have pulled together to offer a wide range of support and resources for those affected. Below are links to several of organizations with information on how to obtain immediate assistance with food, transportation, finances, mental health, and more. We will continue to update information as new resources become available.
For a complete list of local resources, please call 211 or text your zip code to 898-211.
The Psychological Services Center is working to implement additional services specifically for those community members affected. Please check back soon for additional information.
Heath and Safety: Effective May 11, 2023, the federal COVID-19 Public Health Declaration ended. The CDC and New York State Department of Health have shifted guidance regarding the prevention and control of COVID-19. All staff, clients, and visitors experiencing symptoms, a positive test, or known exposure to COVID-19 are asked to remain home. The use of face masks is optional for non-symptomatic clients, staff, and visitors. Our policies are subject to change with state and federal guidelines. For more information regarding our current policies and procedures, please call 716-645-3697 or email us.
Treatment Options: We recognize that not all individuals are able or comfortable returning to services in-person, and as such, we will continue to offer treatment services through telehealth (using video conferencing so that you can see and hear your therapist) in a limited capacity.
Resources: Below are some resources regarding stress management and self-care that may be useful.
