The UWM Psychology Clinic offers low-cost psychotherapy and assessment services to the UWM and broader Milwaukee-area community. We strive for excellence in culturally sensitive training and services in evidence-based psychological care. Therapy and assessment services are provided by doctoral students in the UWM Clinical Psychology Ph.D. program, with supervision from program faculty.
The UWM PSYCHOLOGY CLINIC is open for in-person and remote screening, therapy and assessment services with regular COVID-19 procedures and precautions. As such and as mandated by UWM, masks are required indoors in all UWM buildings. Assessments are being conducted in a hybrid manner, with some portions happening via telehealth and others happening face-to-face.
Our mission is threefold:
Be a center of excellence in culturally sensitive training
The UWM Psychology Clinic is a training facility operated within the UWM Psychology Department. The Psychology Clinic staff is comprised of doctoral students in the clinical psychology PhD training program. All graduate students receive their first three years of supervised experience in the Clinic, and more advanced graduate students may elect to continue to see clients in the Clinic as well. Student therapists are closely supervised by the Clinical Psychology faculty and staff. All therapy rooms have adjoining observation rooms for live observation and recording of therapy and assessment sessions, to enable this supervision. The Psychology Clinic is committed to the concept of cultural humility in training and services.
Offer affordable, evidenced-based psychological care
The Psychology Clinic provides evidenced-based psychotherapy and assessment with adolescents and adults who are residents of Milwaukee and the surrounding community, as well as UWM students, faculty, and staff. The Psychology Clinic houses several specialty therapy clinics, which include but are not limited to, traumatic stress and anxiety, eating disorders and depression.
All clinic fees for services provided by graduate students are based on a sliding scale and range from $10 – $75 depending on client income and need. There is a $10 flat fee rate for all screenings **(intake fee waived during the coronavirus outbreak)**. We do not accept insurance or Medicaid/Medicare.
Commitment to Diversity
The Psychology Clinic embraces the concept of human diversity and strives to provide culturally-conscious care to all. We embrace an inclusive and inter-sectional definition of diversity, including age, culture, developmental and acquired disabilities, ethnicity, gender, gender identity, national origin, race, religious beliefs, sexual orientation, and socioeconomic differences. We denounce all forms of racism, violence and oppression and believe that every person who enters our clinic has the right to feel safe, respected, and valued.
