The Psychological Services Center (PSC), is operated by the Department of Psychology at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign. Our Center directly contributes to the University mission of transforming lives and serving society by:
This combination of teaching, scholarship, service, and public engagement directly support the University's vision of excellence, innovation and leadership.
The PSC strives to serve diverse clients from different walks of life using culturally relevant, strength-based, and evidence-based approaches. It is important to us that everyone who seeks services at our Center is treated in a respectful and welcoming way. We also strive to be sensitive to the effects of diversity-related issues such as oppression and discrimination based on race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, identity, religion, age, immigration status, military status, legal record, or other forms of intolerance.
Most of our therapy and group services are offered by pre-licensed, masters-level clinical trainees under the supervision of doctoral level faculty from the UIUC Clinical-Community Psychology program. Some services â€“ where indicated â€“ may be offered by doctoral level psychologists.
Our clinicians and supervisors are diverse in many ways and strive to be culturally sensitive to race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, age, gender orientation, disability, religion, military standing and other human differences.
Specific fees are discussed during your first appointment.
