Department of Psychology

The GMU Center for Psychological Services is monitoring the outbreak of COVID-19/Coronavirus, and is taking recommended steps to limit exposure to our students, staff and clients. We are following guidelines from George Mason University

We currently have openings for therapy utilizing telehealth.

We are also using a hybrid model for our testing, which means a portion of the testing is virtual and some takes place at the Center.  Please call or email us for details.

Food for Thought

Thank you to everyone that attended and/or supported our 4th Annual Fundraiser, which was held on March 2, 2020. The fundraiser was a great success, and a good time was had by all that attended. Most importantly, we raised more than $62,000 for the Center's mission to provide evidence-based clinical training in mental health counseling and other mental health services in the Northern Virginia community. 

Please read this note of thanks from our Director, Dr. Robyn Mehlenbeck.
