Center for Psychological Services

The GMU Center for Psychological Services provides evidence-based assessment and treatment services to people of all ages across the Northern Virginia and greater Capital region. Services are primarily provided by graduate students under the supervision of qualified, licensed professionals. All of our supervising faculty are affiliated with GMU, practicing, teaching, and/or conducting nationally funded research. As leaders in our specialty fields, we keep up to date with the most relevant and innovative developments in assessment and intervention.

The Fairfax Consortium for Evidence-Based Practice is looking for people to participate in two focus groups- one of parents and one of teens (age 12-17)- to provide feedback on treatment programs that we have developed for teens who are experiencing depression, anxiety, and/or behavioral issues.
