The Ohio University Psychology and Social Work Clinic is here to help with comprehensive teletherapy and teleassessment services.

The clinic is a supportive, affirming outpatient mental health clinic that is primarily staffed by doctoral student therapists of the Ohio University Clinical Psychology program.

  • Contact the clinic by email at or phone at 740-593-0902.

The clinic, located in Porter Hall, offers weekly individual therapy for a broad range of behavioral health concerns and life stressors including depression, anxiety, phobias, disordered eating, trauma, OCD, chronic pain, personality disorders, self-harm, school refusal, poor sleep, bereavement, adjustment issues, ADHD, child conduct problems, and more.

“Our student clinicians are trained in the latest evidence-based practices of therapy and assessment for children, adolescents, and adults. Clinicians are supervised by licensed clinical psychologists within the Psychology Department,” says Megan Austin, Assistant Professor of Instruction and Director of the Psychology and Social Work Clinic.

“Aside from individual therapy, we also offer a variety of psychoeducational groups at low cost. We’re currently offering evidence-based skill groups for coping with COVID-related distress, managing insomnia, and parenting support.”

Finally, the clinic also offers comprehensive psychodiagnostic and neuropsychological assessments. Neuropsychological assessments typically help to evaluate patients for intellectual functioning, ADHD and learning disabilities, or screen for dementia.

“At this time, the clinic is only seeing clients remotely, either via telephone or videoconferencing; however, we plan to re-open for in-person services when it becomes safe for us to do so.  The PSWC is conveniently located in the heart of OHIO’s campus on the ground floor of Porter Hall.  Our parking and facilities are handicap accessible,” Austin says.

The clinic accepts many common types of insurance, including Medicaid. For more information and eligibility, clients can 740-593-0902 or email us at
