Psychological Services Center


Our Mission

Psych building photoThe Department of Psychology at Syracuse University is dedicated to providing excellent clinical training to our doctoral students in clinical and school psychology.  Our programs are accredited by the American Psychological Association, and we attract the very best students from around the world.  The Psychological Services Center (PSC) is staffed by advanced doctoral students who are also involved in research activities in the areas of clinical intervention, cardiovascular health, chronic pain, substance use problems, sexual health and chronic stress.  Our clinical supervisors are faculty members and practicing clinicians who are devoted to the dual task of training our student-clinicians and assuring high-quality care to the clients we serve.


Since we are engaged in training as well as service, we can provide treatment and psychological assessment services at affordable rates. We seek to provide the best possible psychological services to those who seek our help, and are rewarded by the ability to contribute to the well-being of the Syracuse community.

Confidentiality

The Psychological Services Center (PSC) adheres to the ethical guidelines of the American Psychological Association, including strictly respecting your rights to confidentiality.  However, you should be aware that there can be certain circumstances under which your rights to confidentiality may be overridden by a conflicting legal or ethical duty:  1) when there is significant risk of harm to yourself or another person; 2) when we learn of current child neglect or abuse; or 3) if we are ordered to surrender records by a judge to a court of law.


All psychotherapy sessions are video or audiotaped to aid supervision and to improve the quality of care.  Recordings are held in strict confidence, and they are erased promptly after being used for training and supervision purposes.

Community Members not Affiliated with Syracuse University:


A fee for our services will be determined by the intake coordinator based on your income and the number of individuals supported by that income. Our sliding scale ranges from $15-$35 per session. All psychological assessments are $175 for community clients.


We do not bill insurance. Clients should check with their insurance company if they are interested in seeking reimbursement for payments made to our center. All payments are due at the time services are rendered. Clients considered to have delinquent clinic accounts must negotiate a payment plan before scheduling further appointments if: (a) they have not made at least one payment at each third session or (b) their account balance exceeds four times the hourly rate.

Although most of our services are conducted by doctoral students, our licensed clinical supervisor may also provide therapy and assesment services at a fee agreed upon between the practitioner and the client.
