About us

The MSU Psychological Clinic aims to be:

  1. a state-of the-art training facility that provides high quality evidence-based care
  2. accessible & reliable for those seeking mental health services in Greater Lansing
  3. a distinguished referral source for our colleagues in the community

MSU clinical psychology doctoral students, as well as other trainees or students enrolled in practicum, receive intensive and specialized training through the Clinic. The MSU clinical psychology doctoral program believes in providing its trainees opportunities to work with clients from diverse backgrounds (e.g., ethnic/racial/economic/religious/sexual) across the lifespan (child/adult). Clinicians treat and assess clients with a range of specific disorders and problems. Individual, family, and group interventions are taught. Students also receive exposure to different theoretical orientations and multiple therapeutic techniques. 

All trainees are supervised by licensed psychologists who are also faculty at Michigan State University.

Our Commitment to Diversity and Affirming Care

The MSU Psychological Clinic is committed to serving our diverse community. We aim to create a safe, inclusive, and affirming environment, embracing all of the unique identities that a person may hold (e.g., racial identity, ethnic identity, sexual orientation, gender identity, religious, spiritual and political beliefs, immigration and acculturation status, ability status, socioeconomic status, etc.), and maintaining an appreciation for how identities intersect with each other, and shape lived experiences. As culturally competent clinicians who strive to provide affirming care and place context at the forefront of understanding our clients, we value life-long learning in the areas of justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion and focus on ongoing self-reflection to examine our own attitudes and beliefs.
