It is a community-based resource open to individuals throughout the Capital District.

The Center provides approximately 3,500 hours of psychological services, including psychotherapy, psychological testing, cognitive therapy, marital therapy, and vocational and career counseling, per year to about 300 clients per year, or 120 clients per week. The Center provides psychological services on a sliding scale of $10 to $45 per hour and is one of the few low-cost outpatient clinics in the region. The center is a partnership between the Department of Psychology in the College of Arts and Sciences and the School of Education's Department of Educational & Counseling Psychology.
