UPDATE: The Psychology Clinic remains closed at this time, and a date for reopening has not been determined. The University of Alabama is under Limited Business Operations at this time, and our Clinic continues to monitor the COVID-19 outbreak. We are not currently seeing clients for in-person sessions, in order to protect the health of clients and their families, therapists, and staff.

If you are a current client receiving therapy services from the Psychology Clinic, you should have received a phone call from our office by 03/27/2020. Please follow the plan discussed with you by your therapist. We are only in the office intermittently, so phone calls cannot be regularly monitored. We will update this page with any changes in the coming weeks, so please continue to check back.

If you are a client on our wait list, please know that we are not initiating new therapy or assessment cases at this time, but you can remain on our wait list during Clinic closure. We will contact you when the Clinic reopens to determine if you are still interested in services, as well as to discuss estimated wait times. If you are not on our wait list but are interested in receiving services from our Clinic in the future, please check back for updates regarding when we will reopen.

As always, if this is an emergency, or you are concerned for your safety or the safety of others, please call 911.

Coping with social distancing.
