All new therapy/assessment clients should call the office to schedule an intake appointment. Intake appointments are typically scheduled for 2-hour blocks. The initial interview provides an opportunity for your therapist to gather specific information about treatment or assessment needs and to review clinic policies. Therapy or assessments appointments are then scheduled.
Therapy clients can expect to meet weekly with a therapist. Assessment clients can expect to meet for 2-4 hour testing sessions per week. Assessments can take from 3-10 hours depending on the type of assessment, clients ability to test and overlap of schedules.
For child services a 10-20 minute phone screening is performed prior to scheduling an intake session.
Often, clients seeking services are placed on a waiting list depending on the availability of clinicians working at the clinic. The WSU Psychology Clinic is a training facility, not all cases are appropriate for doctoral student clinicians. If this is the case, appropriate referrals will be made to outside providers.
