The Psychological Evaluation Research and Counseling Clinic provides diagnostic evaluations and psychological services to adults, adolescents, children, and families of diverse cultural backgrounds who are having behavioral, emotional, learning, or adjustment problems. Emphasis is placed on clarifying problem areas, developing realistic goals, and providing active, short-term treatment. The full psychological evaluation consists of a biographical data review, psychological testing and assessment, an interpretive conference, and a written report.

A full array of specialty clinics for the provision of psychotherapy can be found on our website. Couple and family therapy is also being provided.
