Psychotherapy and Assessment Services
Psychological Services Clinic of Chestnut Hill College (PSC-CHC) is a community mental health clinic whose mission is to provide affordable, excellent psychotherapy and assessment services to a diverse range of individuals of varying ages. An important focus of our work is helping individuals and families improve functioning in their relationships, schools, jobs, and day-to-day lives. All mental health services are performed by doctoral psychology practicum students, pre-doctoral interns, and post-doctoral fellows trained in Chestnut Hill College's PsyD Program. Licensed clinical psychologists on the faculty of the Chestnut Hill College Department of Professional Psychology supervise all clinical work and co-sign all assessment reports. PSC-CHC does not have a psychiatrist on staff but your clinician can discuss referrals with you if appropriate. Our outpatient clinic is unable to provide emergency, crisis, or acute-need mental health services.
PSC-CHC provides individual and family outpatient treatment for difficulties including:
- Anxiety, depression, and other mood disorders
- Problems with adjustment and stress
- Relationship, couple, and family problems
All treatment is individualized based on specific client needs.
Psychological Assessment Services
Our clinic performs comprehensive psychological evaluations of cognitive functioning, memory, academic achievement, personality, behavioral, and other areas of psychological and psychoeducational functioning. We work with children, adolescents, college students, and adults to assess problems that relate to:
- Learning disabilities
- Academic/vocational achievement difficulties
- Attention deficit disorders
- Psychological adjustment difficulties and personality functioning
In addition, we provide autism spectrum diagnostic testing, as well as intelligence testing required for private school admission. Evaluations all result in an individualized report, which clarifies the nature of problem areas and difficulties, identifies personal strengths, and provides clear, practical recommendations and strategies.
How to Start the Process
Please call PSC-CHC at 215.233.1914, at which time we will gather basic information and review our sliding fee scale with you. You will then be contacted for a brief intake interview by a graduate assistant or student clinician, who will talk with you to determine if PSC-CHC is a good match for you and/or your family. At that time, we will also inform you of the amount of time that you should expect to wait to be contacted by a clinician to schedule an initial appointment. All interactions with our clients are confidential and based on treating each person with respect, dignity, and professionalism.
We are committed to making services affordable to all. Thus, fees are based on a sliding scale, depending on the client's income. We accept cash or checks. We do not accept any insurance. Please contact the clinic for more information.
