The Psychological Service Clinic @ UNC

Counseling Services

Currently, our services are offered through in-person and telehealth formats.

For counseling, clients meet with their counselor-in-training for 45-50 minutes per appointment. Clients are scheduled through the PSC office and are typically given appointments for the same time every week. Treatment usually lasts from 6 to 14 sessions. The cost is typically $75 per semester regardless of the number of appointments attended. We accept cash and credit cards (Visa, MasterCard, Discover).

To schedule services and complete a brief telephone intake, contact the PSC office at 970-351-1645.

Individual Counseling

Clients meet with their counselor-in-training individually to address a wide variety of concerns. Individual counseling is a collaborative process where clients actively participate in creating and reaching their treatment goals.

Child/Adolescent Counseling

During most semesters, we have counselors-in-training who specialize in providing counseling to children and adolescents from ages 7-18. These counselors-in-training strive to balance providing a safe space for clients to speak openly while also collaborating with parents or guardians throughout the treatment process.

Play Therapy

During most semesters, we have counselors-in-training who offer play therapy with children aged 1-9. Based on the philosophy that play is the natural language of children, this type of treatment allows younger children to express themselves and process their feelings without words. Through play therapy, children learn how to express their thoughts and feelings in constructive ways, to control their behavior, to make decisions, and to accept responsibility. Although the child's therapy time is their own, regular parent consultations are scheduled, as parents play an essential role in their child's success.

Couples Counseling*

Sometimes problems go beyond the individual. Couples may seek out counseling together through our clinic. We are LGBTQ+-affirming and welcome couples at any place in their relationship. We work with couples seeking services for a wide range of concerns, such as communication, intimacy, life transitions, infidelity, and more.

Family Therapy*

Therapy can extend to the entire family. We work with nuclear, blended, and extended families, or any range between. Issues addressed in family therapy can focus on communication, emotional expression, grief, parenting or co-parenting concerns, boundary and role disputes among family members, and other concerns affecting the family.

*Due to Colorado law we are unable to work with couples or families with member(s) actively engaging in or in imminent danger of engaging in violence in the home. We have referrals to local resources that specialize in these services. Please contact us if you have questions or concerns, or would like to receive information on these local resources.
