COVID-19 Coping Sessions

In addition to its usual counseling services, the UAA Psychological Services Center (PSC) is offering free telehealth COVID-19 Coping Sessions for people struggling with sadness, loneliness, anxiety, trouble sleeping, lack of motivation or other behavioral health issues while dealing with these trying times. The COVID-19 Coping Session is a free single, one-hour session with a mental health clinician that will be conducted via Zoom or phone. Call 786-1795 to schedule your COVID-19 Coping Session.


The Psychological Services Center (PSC) at the University of Alaska Anchorage (UAA) is the training clinic for graduate students in the MS Clinical Psychology Program and the PhD Program in Clinical-Community Psychology.

Director

The Psychological Services Center Director is Dr. Grant Sasse.

Services

Counseling is provided for families and individuals in an atmosphere sensitive to culture and ethnicity.  People are seen for many reasons from a curiosity about one's own potential to concerns such as anxiety, depression, stress, loss, and relationship difficulties.

Client privacy and confidentiality is observed. Students are welcomed in the UAA PSC but clients do not need to be affiliated with UAA to receive services.  Because this is a training clinic that is closed on weekends, holidays, and school breaks, the Psychological Services Center is generally not a good match for people who have severe crises.

Providers

The UAA PSC clinicians are graduate master and doctoral students who are supervised by licensed psychologists.  All services available are confidential and meet the ethical guidelines established by the American Psychological Association and HIPAA (the Health Information Portability and Accountability Act).  

Location

The UAA PSC is located on the second floor of the UAA Social Sciences Building, RM 255.
