Behavioral Health Clinic
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and in accordance with CDC guidelines, the Behavioral Health Clinic has moved to offering services entirely by telehealth until further notice. Please fill out a patient interest survey if you are interested in services or would like more information.
The Psychology Department Behavioral Health Clinic (BHC) offers scientifically validated outpatient therapy to individuals, couples and families at low cost. Our treatment services are designed to provide effective psychological care in a compassionate environment.
The BHC serves as a training center for advanced psychology trainees. We are dedicated to providing the highest quality treatments for our patients while providing the highest quality training for our graduate students as they learn evidence based psychological treatments. All services are provided by graduate students in the Psychology Department’s PhD Program in Clinical Psychology. All therapists are closely supervised by licensed clinical psychologists who have expertise in the delivery of evidence-based treatments.
Administration and training activities at the BHC are overseen Dr. Jolene Jacquart, the Clinic Director, and Dr. Mary-Frances O'Connor, the Director of Clinical Training and Associate Professor of Psychology.
At the BHC we assist people who are struggling with emotional difficulties including treating depression and anxiety as well as helping people learn to cope with stress and manage difficult life circumstances. The BHC believes that the most effective treatments rely on the scientific method. Our therapists utilize evidence-based methods, including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), scientifically supported treatments for anxiety, depression, and other emotional difficulties.
- Our treatments take a learning-based approach in which you will learn and practice skills for weakening patterns of maladaptive thinking and behavior.
- Treatment is tailored to your specific needs, rather than being “one size fits all.”
- Treatments are brief (typically, 12-18 sessions) and intended to provide the tools needed to overcome your current distress.
- We provide assistance for a wide range of emotional difficulties. Some of the many difficulties we treat include, but are not limited to, Social Anxiety Disorder, Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, Generalized Anxiety Disorder, Panic attacks and Panic Disorder, Agoraphobia, Posttraumatic Stress Disorder, Specific Phobias, and Depression
The BHC does not provide emergency services or medication management.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, all psychology services are currently offered via telehealth for the safety of our patients and therapists. Telehealth appointments are hosted on a secure HIPAA compliant video conference program.
- Individual appointments: $25.00
- Couple or family sessions: $35.00
These costs are to be paid at the time of each visit. We do not accept insurance. Fees go towards covering clinic expenses.
