The IPS Psychology Training Clinic is a training center for the doctoral students of the Institute for the Psychological Sciences, a Catholic graduate school of psychology.
We work with a variety of populations, including:
|adolescents||couples and families|
|college students||religious and clergy|
We offer short-term and long-term psychotherapy, including:
|individual psychotherapy||couples psychotherapy|
|group psychotherapy||play therapy|
We work with a variety of concerns, including:
|parenting difficulties||anger management|
|marital/family problems||common child problems|
We also offer a variety of assessment services:
|cognitive assessment||personality assessment|
|vocational/religious assessment||educational assessment|
Because we are a non-profit, community-service oriented Psychology Training Clinic, we offer a sliding-fee scale for therapy and assessment based on income. We do not refuse services because of clients’ limited financial resources.
At this time, we are unable to accept insurance plans.
The IPS Training Clinic is staffed by externs who have already completed their master’s degrees and are pursuing their doctoral degrees.
Dr. Stephen Hamel, Ph.D., ABPP is the Director of the IPS Training Clinic and all the work carried out by our doctoral externs is supervised by experienced, licensed clinical psychologists who are on the faculty of the Institute.
The IPS Psychology Training Clinic is committed to providing high quality mental health services consistent with a Catholic understanding of the person, marriage and family life. At the heart of such treatment is a deep respect for the dignity of the client and commitment to providing appropriate services without discrimination and within the context of the client’s culture, race, religion, gender, and developmental level.
