The Interprofessional Center offers psychological services to a diverse population of clients with mental health issues, while providing both practicum experiences and a pre-doctoral internship for graduate professional psychology students. At the IPC, students strive to meet the needs of underserved people while gaining valuable real-world experience. Our clients are low-income, uninsured or underinsured, individuals who often are unable to obtain psychological services if it were not for clinics like the IPC. Services provided to clients (all free of charge) can include: individual counseling, group counseling, couples/family counseling, DBT (both skills group and therapy), psychological testing and/or psycho-education. In addition, students may have the opportunity to periodically work on cases which are shared between Psychological Services and Social Work, Psychological Services and Law, or among all three of the disciplines at the IPC.
