Meet Our Staff
Each clinician is trained to assess and treat a wide variety of concerns, although some staff have particular areas of expertise. Clinicians are also available to consult on a variety of issues affecting student growth and development. If you are a new client and would like to meet with a specific clinician, you may request her/him. However, the first available appointment may be with a different provider. In that case, you would have a longer wait time for your first appointment.
