Who is eligible for services at the Community Counseling and Assessment Clinic?
Services at the Clinic are open to the general public. You do not need to be affiliated with the university in any way to seek services. We welcome clients aged 16 and up.
How much do you charge?
As a community service, we offer our services at affordable rates. There is a $10 charge for the initial interview session, and fees for most individual counseling services are based on a sliding scale ranging from $10 to $45 per session based on income. Additional fee reductions are often available for individuals experiencing financial hardship.
Fees for psychological assessment services (e.g., adult ADHD evaluations, substance use assessments) are based on the nature of the evaluation and time required to complete it but are generally between $50 and $200.
More information about fees can be found on our website.
Who will my counselor be?
All services are provided by graduate students in the Counseling Psychology Program at the University of Southern Mississippi. Graduate students provide services under the supervision of licensed psychologists (or those currently pursuing licensure).
What does it mean that the Community Counseling and Assessment Clinic is a training clinic?
As a training clinic, we are able to offer our services at significantly lower costs than what one typically finds in the Hattiesburg community. Our services are provided by graduate students in the Counseling Psychology program under the supervision of faculty. All sessions are recorded and reviewed by supervisors in order to ensure that students are providing quality care and to provide them with feedback. These recordings are strictly confidential and are deleted as soon as they have been reviewed by the student's supervisor.
We do not have the resources to provide emergency/crisis services or walk-in appointments. Individuals needing services right away are encouraged to refer to this list of emergency resources we have compiled.
