Life stress is inevitable, especially when you're dealing with problems at school, in the workplace, and with your friends and family. The important thing is to realize that you do not have to confront your difficulties alone. Through the Behavioral Health and Assessment Services (BHAS) available at the Loyola Clinical Centers, you will find a full range of outpatient psychological care services designed to help you advance from a state of confusion to a state of clarity.
Through assessments and therapy sessions, our responsive, well-trained graduate student clinicians have helped countless individuals overcome their struggles with depression, anxiety, learning and attention problems, as well as major life stress and conflicts, such as low self-esteem, divorce, bereavement, and family or career conflicts. In fact, with small case loads, your student clinician is able to devote the level of time and care you won't receive from other clinics. With the direct supervision and expertise from multiple professors and Licensed Psychologists, you will receive a unique, multi-tiered approach to supervised care.
In keeping with our comprehensive approach to wellness, we also provide well-rounded care to account for various factors contributing to psychological difficulties. Clients and family members may be closely involved in treatment in order to enhance the client's overall well-being and functioning. Ultimately, our client-centric approach will help you overcome your challenges and enable you to have more fulfilling relationships, be more successful in work and school and improve your overall quality of life.
