  • The Phone Intake
    Our administrative staff will schedule a 30-minute telephone intake session for you with a Clinic Coordinator. During the intake, the Coordinator will collect information about you and your treatment needs in order to determine whether our services would be appropriate for your concerns and if so, how we are most likely to help you. The Clinic Director will review information from the phone intake, and we will contact you within one week following your intake to discuss plans for your treatment.

  • Directions and Parking

    Driving Directions: 

    If you are on Grand River Ave, enter campus via Farm Lane (this is Collingwood Ave going in the other direction). Once you turn, the Broad Art Museum will be on your right hand side. Continue approximately ¼ mile and there will be a small parking lot on your left (labeled with a street sign – Psychology Road). You will park in this small lot and enter the Psychology Building through the door labeled MSU Psychological Clinic (faces Grand River Ave). Once inside, the Clinic will be located to your right.

    Putting "262 Psychology Road, East Lansing, MI 48824" into your GPS should provide you with accurate directions as well.

     

    Parking Instructions: 

    In the visitor lot, the Clinic owns two parking spaces, located closest to the walkway (on the right-hand side of the walkway, if facing the building). Please park in one of these spaces, if available. If not available, you may park in a faculty/staff space after 6pm. If neither of those options are available, you may park in a Visitor Space. Our administrative assistant will take down your car information if you are parked in one of our spots or provide you with a parking pass to park in a visitor spot. 

  • What to Expect at your First Appointment

    During your first appointment, you will sign consent for treatment forms, meet with your clinician, and complete questionnaires that will help your clinician better understand your symptoms and create a treatment plan.
