We're here for you.
Our staff and students welcome the opportunity to assist you during times of emotional challenge.
Our clinic is a university-based training facility for graduate students in the Counseling Psychology and the School Psychology Master's Degree Programs at Humboldt State University. Faculty in the Department of Psychology supervise all students. Graduate students in the Counseling Master's Program provide direct services to clients. Our clinic operates in accordance with the ethical standards of the American Psychological Association (APA) and California Association of Marriage and Family Therapists (CAMFT).
Our clinic is a no-cost source for counseling services for HSU and for the broader Humboldt County Community. We see individuals, couples, families, adolescents, and children. Group counseling for adults is sometimes available. In the event that the clinic cannot meet a client's needs, we will make appropriate referrals.
The clinic includes four therapy rooms, a waiting room, recording and playback room, and office space. Because the clinic is a university training center, most rooms have mounted video cameras for recording sessions so that faculty can review and provide feedback to trainees.
Your right to privacy is important to us. We are required to hold everything you say in confidence, except as authorized by you in a signed release or as provided by law. Exceptions by law are:
- If we believe you intend to seriously harm yourself.
- If we believe you intend to seriously harm others.
- If you discuss a situation where a child, dependent adult, or an elderly person appears to be at significant risk for abuse.
- If we are court-ordered by a judge to release records.
This is a no-cost clinic.
