Psychological services are available for adults and children to the University community (faculty, staff and students) as well as to individuals from Columbia and surrounding areas. Both day and evening appointments are available. The Psychological Services Clinic operates under the Department of Psychological Sciences at the University of Missouri-Columbia. It is staffed by Ph.D.licensed psychologists and staff clinicians.

The Psychological Services Clinic provides individual, couples, family, and group therapy. The clinic accepts insurance and provides fee assistance if needed. Our Clinic faculty are on the provider panels of several managed care companies (including health maintenance organizations and preferred provider organizations). The Clinic also offers educational presentations for groups. Call to schedule an appointment or to request a program.

The Psychological Services Clinic is a community-based outpatient facility that serves as the primary clinical practicum training site for the clinical program. A variety of psychological services (assessment, consultation, and individual, group and family therapy) are provided to people and agencies in the University and Columbia communities, largely by student clinicians in the program under the close supervision of the clinical faculty and psychologists on staff at the Clinic (currently three doctoral-level clinical psychologists). Currently there are five PhD licensed clinical psychologists on the staff.
