The University of Washington, School Psychology Clinic is a University-Based community clinic that aims to serve children and families in the Seattle community.

The School Psychology Clinic serves as a training site for graduate students in the School Psychology Educational Specialist and Doctoral Programs at the University of Washington. All services are supervised by a licensed psychologist/clinician and Program faculty member. It also services as a clinical-research site for the faculty and students in the department. Our clinic provides individual therapy/counseling services (both in-person and virtual) to children and adolescents (ages 8 to 18) and testing/assessment services to children and adolescents (preschool ages 3 to 5 years and ages 8 to 18). At this time, our clinic provides services free of charge to the community.

Below are common concerns that children and families often seek support for: 

  • Therapy/counseling: Anxiety, Depression, Trauma, Grief/Loss, Low self-esteem, Life Transitions (e.g. divorce), School Adjustment (e.g. moved from different city or to a new school in the area), Relationship issues, Family-related difficulties, Stress, Parenting Difficulties, Attention-Related Difficulties, Social Skills
  • Assessment: Learning disability concerns, reading, math, or writing Difficulties, executive Functioning challenges, school behavior challenges

With these concerns, we can help in a number of ways such as:

  • Providing you with a confidential and safe place for you to discuss your concerns
  • Helping you identify your needs and developing a plan moving forward to address them
  • Providing you with psychoeducation on coping skills
  • Connecting you with resources in the community

Our training clinic does not provide official diagnoses for concerns about learning or attention difficulties. The assessments done in our clinic result in a comprehensive cognitive and learning profile that summarizes the strengths and challenges present for your child. This report can be used in conversations with healthcare providers and schools/educators or any other support professional to continue to support the client based on their needs.
