The EMU Psychology Clinic is a teaching facility operated by the EMU Department of Psychology. The Clinic Director, Karen Saules, Ph.D., oversees the management of the Clinic under the authority of the Psychology Department Head and in close consultation with the Clinical Training Director and the Clinical Area Faculty.
Low cost clinical services — including psychological assessments and psychotherapy — are provided by clinical psychology graduate students under the supervision of licensed EMU clinical psychology faculty. The three main functions of the Clinic are: (a) to offer psychological services to the Ypsilanti community and surrounding region; (b) to provide professional training for Clinical Psychology graduate students, (c) to support clinically relevant research projects.
The clinic aims to provide convenient and affordable psychological services to area residents. A broad range of behavioral, emotional, cognitive, developmental, lifespan, health related, family-of-origin and interpersonal issues can be addressed. Therapeutic approaches utilized by clinic supervisors include behavioral, cognitive-behavioral, family systems, insight oriented, interpersonal, feminist and psychodynamic orientations.
The Clinic is located at 611 West Cross Street at the corner of W. Cross Street and College Place, adjacent to EMU’s main campus. Free parking is available to clinic clients. Ann Arbor bus routes 4, 5, and 33 (EMU Shuttle) stop nearby. The Clinic is open from 8:30 AM-7:00 PM Mondays through Thursdays and 8:30-4:00 pm on Fridays. The Clinic operates on a 12-month basis, although services may be curtailed during University breaks.
Fees are due at the time of service. Our non-negotiable fees are as follows:
|Group therapy||$5 per session|
|Individual Therapy||$10 per session|
|Psychological Assessment||$200 for a full battery, including comprehensive report|
Please note that all therapy begins with an intake evaluation, which is billed at the normal therapy rate. "Psychological Assessments" are more complex evaluations that involve administering a battery of tests to evaluate attention deficit disorders, learning disabilities, autism spectrum disorders, or other types of cognitive/neuropsychological impairment.
Interested persons are encouraged to call the clinic to request or inquire about services. A telephone interview will be conducted to determine whether a caller’s needs match services the clinic may be able to provide. Please be advised that the EMU Psychology Clinic is a training clinic. As such, we are not prepared to respond to the needs of all callers. In particular, we cannot typically meet the needs of individuals who are in immediate need of treatment or assessment. In addition, services are not necessarily offered to callers in the order that requests are received. Rather, those seeking services are assigned to student therapists based on a number of factors that relate to training needs and the availability of appropriate clinical supervision. As such, it is not possible for us to provide estimates of when any particular individual may be scheduled for an initial session. We will, however, try to provide referral information for other agencies or mental health practitioners that might be able to assist with immediate needs. Note that the Clinic is not able to provide medications or any form of medical care.
