The Center Clinic is a community mental health center housed within the George Washington University Professional Psychology Program. All of the clinicians, referred to as clinical externs, are graduate students in clinical psychology supervised by licensed professionals. The Center Clinic is staffed by advanced doctoral students in the George Washington University Professional Psychology Program. These therapists are supervised by licensed, highly-experienced professionals.
The Clinic provides mental health services to adults, adolescents, and children in the Washington, D.C., area who may otherwise not have access to needed care. These services include individual, couples, family, and group psychotherapy, as well as psychological assessment. Patients may also be referred for a psychiatric consultation through a partnership with the University’s Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Science. The Clinic also contributes to local community service agencies (such as public and charter schools, homeless shelters, and addiction recovery programs) by providing needed consultation, assessment, and therapeutic services free of charge.
Our non-profit clinic provides short- and long-term mental health treatment. We strive to meet a range of mental health needs, providing affordable psychological evaluation and treatment. Our goal is to provide comprehensive quality mental health services to the community at a cost everyone can afford. We offer a sliding scale fee.
We work with a variety of populations, including:
- Gays and lesbians
- Ethnic minorities
- Young children
- Extended families in crisis
- Women in the workforce
Depending on therapist availability, we may be able to provide services in languages other than English.
