Community Counseling and Assessment Clinic

About the Clinic

The Community Counseling and Assessment Clinic is the service, training, and research center of the Counseling Psychology graduate programs in the School of Psychology at the University of Southern Mississippi. All services are provided by Counseling Psychology graduate students under the close supervision of program faculty members, most of whom are licensed psychologists.


All services are provided by appointment only. To schedule an appointment or obtain more information about our services, call 601.266.4601. If you are not able to reach a receptionist directly, you can leave a confidential message and someone will return your call as soon as possible. Except for minors, appointments are generally made only for the caller. However, we will be glad to provide any caller with information about our services.


As a community service, we offer our services at affordable rates. There is a $10 charge for the initial interview session. After this interview, our Case Assignment Team determines whether the services available at the Clinic are an appropriate fit for you. A counselor will then contact you to schedule the requested service or refer you to another agency if we are unable to meet your needs. Fees for counseling services range from $10 to $45 per session and are based on family income. As a service to the university, counseling is available to Southern Miss students at a reduced rate of $5/session. Fees for assessment services are based on the nature of the evaluation and the amount of time typically required to complete such an evaluation. They generally cost between $50 and $200.

Insurance Coverage

The Clinic operates on a cash basis. Payment is expected at the time services are rendered. We do not accept direct assignment of Medicare, Medicaid, or other insurance benefits, nor can we bill insurance companies directly. Most insurance providers do not reimburse clients for services provided by students, trainees, interns, or other unlicensed individuals.
