Our Mission

Clinical Psychology Center Mission Statement

The Clinical Psychology Center at the University of Pittsburgh is a clinic staffed by doctoral graduate student trainees in the Clinical Psychology PhD Program who are supervised by licensed psychologists and mental health professionals. We serve both children and adults in our local community. Our treatment approaches empower individuals and their support networks to be active participants in their care, helping them to achieve their personal and interpersonal goals. We offer evidence-based psychotherapy across multiple theoretical orientations (e.g., cognitive behavior therapy, interpersonal therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy) for a wide range of concerns (e.g., depression, anxiety, ADHD, relationship concerns) across the lifespan. The Clinical Psychology Center also offers comprehensive psychological and cognitive assessments. We rely on evidence-based treatments and assessments in our clinic and personalize our care to each individual.

The Clinical Psychology Center strives to create a safe, inclusive, and affirming environment that values the contribution of diverse perspectives from individuals with various identities, attitudes, and beliefs. We acknowledge the impact of privilege, marginalization, and discrimination on the stress, coping, and adjustment of the individuals we treat, and aim to foster an environment that respects all persons’ unique experiences. 

We believe that mental healthcare should not be contingent on economic resources and strive to reduce barriers to care access. As such, our clinic follows a sliding-scale for fees based on income.
