Auburn University Psychological Services Center

Welcome to the Auburn University Psychological Services Center (AUPSC). AUPSC is a training clinic that provides therapy and assessment services for children, adolescents, adults, and families in the Auburn-Opelika area. The mission of AUPSC is to provide quality mental health services to the community, train future professionals, and further knowledge through research.

In addition to psychological assessments and therapy, the AUPSC offers services through several specialty clinics including evaluations for autism spectrum disorder, Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), learning disorders, applied behavior analytic services for children with autism through the Center for Autism Research, Treatment, and Training (CARTT), Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT), interventions to support children, adolescents, young adults, and families manage chronic illness, and health behavior assessments.

Services at our clinic are open to anyone. You do not need to be affiliated with the University to seek services. We welcome clients of all ages, nationalities, gender identities, races, ethnicities, sexual orientations, and ability/disability.

We are committed to providing care that is responsive to clients from diverse backgrounds. All of our clinicians and faculty are required to complete a cultural competency training, and many have participated in additional training on LGBTQ+ concerns. While we may not have the same lived experiences as our clients, it is our intention to create a safe environment for individuals with a variety of intersecting identities. See our Diversity tab for more information about our commitment to cultural humility.

COVID UPDATE JANUARY 2022

Following Auburn University and CDC guidelines, the AUPSC will be offering in person and remote services (telehealth only available for clients residing in the state of Alabama) during the Spring 2022 semester. Regardless of vaccination status, our clinic still requires the use of face coverings that cover the nose and mouth, if you do not have one, one will be provided to you.

In order to participate in telepsychology, you will need a private space for sessions, meaning quiet and free of distractions, access to secure internet and you must reside in the state of Alabama.

In order to ensure safety and health for everyone, the following guidelines have been set in place, if you have an on campus appointment. We have these guidelines to help protect our clients, clinicians, and staff. Important guidelines include:

  • We are relying on our staff, clinicians, and clients to report symptoms and practice safe health guidelines to ensure a healthy clinic. Please self-screen yourself for any COVID-19 or active virus symptoms before entering our clinic for the day. 
  • If you have an in person session, please park in the designated client parking spots and enter Cary Hall through an appropriate entrance. (Accessible entrance is located at the rear door closest to War Eagle and Donahue streetlight). We will provide you a parking pass, if needed.
  • Once you enter Cary Hall, please go to room 101, the clinic waiting rooms to check in with a staff member.
    • During check in we will ask a few screening questions. Please understand this is not to create a barrier in client care, but to help us maintain a safe environment for all clients and staff.
    • Based on screening responses, you may be asked to reschedule the session.
  • Clients can make payments over the phone or through our online payment link, available on our website, prior to your scheduled appointment or at arrival time.
  • We have hand sanitizer available in multiple locations around the clinic and in each therapy and assessment room(s).
  • In order to reduce exposure, we are asking that you only bring one adult for your child's appointment AND leave children who aren't seeking services at home with another caregiver or a sitter.

The AUPSC has taken many pre-cautions to ensure that our clinic is safe for all individuals. 

  • Cleaning and disinfecting. We are cleaning and disinfecting areas and rooms before and after each session, in addition to cleaning any commonly touched surfaces.
  • Staff/Faculty Monitoring. We are monitoring our faculty and staff members' temperatures and symptoms daily. If a staff member presents with any COVID-19 symptoms or a fever they will be sent home immediately. This may result in having to reschedule a session due to clinician availability.
  • Personal Protective Equipment. All faculty and staff members who work in our clinic are required to wear at a minimum a face mask. We are following the CDC and AU Guidelines on this requirement.
  • Social Distancing. We are encouraging all individuals to practice social distancing while in our clinic. Therapy and assessment are set up to allow for social distancing (i.e., allowing the client and clinician at least 3-6 feet of distance while in the room together). Certain assessment procedures and working with young children can make social distancing less feasible. In those situations, we will notify clients ahead of time, and we will take extra steps (e.g., face shields) to minimize risk.
  • We ask that all clients, faculty, graduate students, and staff please be considerate of others. If you are experiencing any COVID-19 or active virus symptoms, please do NOT come to the office. Please self-quarantine and call us to reschedule. If you have tested positive for COVID-19 or an active virus, please do not come to our office until you have received clearance from a medical professional and notified us. Please notify us if you have been exposed to COVID-19.

Please contact us at 334-844-4889 or email aupsc@auburn.edu with any questions you may have or to find out more about the services our clinic offers.

Sincerely,

AUPSC Staff and Department of Psychological Sciences
