COVID Practice Updates
September 2020

In response to social distancing guidelines related to COVID-19, the University of Pittsburgh Clinical Psychology Center will continue to operate on a remote basis until further notice.  The clinic remains closed for all in-person appointments at this time.  However, the clinic is now accepting new referrals for individual therapy for children and adults, utilizing video-based teletherapy platforms.

If you are interested in being considered for individual video-based teletherapy services, please leave a message on the clinic phone line at (412) 624-8822 indicating your interest in individual therapy serivces, your name, phone number, and the best days/times to reach you for a brief telephone interview.  [Also note that the call back you receive may be identified as a 'blocked' or 'no caller ID' telephone number; thus, the ability to accept such calls will be necessary.]

Note that the clinic is not conducting cognitive testing at this time.  As such, we will not be accepting new testing referals until further notice.

In case of an emergency, please contact the Re:Solve Crisis Network at 1-888-796-8226, or dial 911 in your local area.  Non-emergency messages for clinicians can be left on the main clinic phone line at (412) 624-8822.  Messages are checked regularly during remote clinic operating hours, including Mondays 9am-5pm, Tuesdays 9am-8pm, Wednesdays 9am-8pm, Thursdays 10am-8pm, and Fridays 9am-5pm.  In your message, please be sure to leave your name, your clincian's name, your phone number, and best times to reach you.

The Clinical Psychology Center at the University of Pittsburgh provides a full range of outpatient psychological services at reduced fees.  In this training clinic, advanced graduate students in the Clinical Psychology Program offer a wide variety of treatment approaches, including cognitive-behavioral, interpersonal, and family systems psychotherapy.

We offer the following kinds of treatment:

  • Individual psychotherapy for adults, adolescents, and children
  • Group psychotherapy for adults
  • Family counseling
  • Marital/couples counseling
  • Behavioral pain management services

  • Medication management is available in conjunction with the above services, and psychological testing can also be arranged for both adults and children.  Because the Center is not available for 24 hour/day emergencies, we are not able to provide services for a few clients who may have very serious emotional difficulties.  Services are provided without regard to race, color, religion, sex, age, handicap, or sexual orientation.
