Clinical Services

The University of Indianapolis Counseling Center offers the following kinds of clinical services. For more detailed information about the services provided, please call the Center at (317) 788-5015.

Clinical Services -Our staff of psychologists and doctoral psychology students provide individual, group and couples counseling services for students with a wide range of problems. Emphasis is on short-term work, but longer-term therapy is also available. Students are encouraged to call for appointments. They may take the first available appointment or they may request a particular clinician. Students may speak with the Nurse Practitioners of the Health Center regarding questions of medication. Students who initiate counseling services will begin by completing brief information forms. The initial portion of the counseling focuses on an assessment of the problem, contributory factors, and an appropriate plan for intervention. Students may then continue with individual counseling, be referred to a counseling group, or be referred to other sources of help. Individual counseling is short term and problem focused.

Crisis Services -We offer walk-in crisis service between 8:00 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. daily, Monday through Friday. Students are seen on a first-come, first-served basis. The wait depends partially on the availability of staff members, but every effort is made to assess those in crisis as soon as possible. After hours psychiatric crises are handled on an individual basis depending on the need. Counseling Center staff, campus police, residence life staff, and local hospitals may all be involved.
