Commitment to Diversity

The Psychological Services Center (PSC) welcomes individuals of all backgrounds and aspects of identity, including race, ethnicity, nationality, political party, culture, sex (or sex assigned at birth), gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, class, religious belief and non-belief, and level of ability/disability. We recognize that our training program and clinic staff are embedded within a larger culture that includes values, beliefs, biases, and practices that routinely advantage some individuals and disadvantage others. We explicitly disavow and strive to work against differential treatment of people on the basis of these and other factors that are often prejudged by the larger culture.

Our commitment is to treat our clients with respect, act in ways that build trust, and honor the trust placed in us. We are open to perspectives that are different from our own. We support our clients’ efforts to engage in and repair relationships. We believe that prioritizing one's personal identity and values alongside evidence-based treatment will promote the relief of suffering and progress towards therapeutic goals.

We understand that during times of social, political, economic and environmental strife, it is sometimes difficult to feel seen and heard. The PSC is committed to creating a space for clients to express personal concerns, explore their values and find ways to make their values come to life.
