Community Counseling & Psychology Clinic


The Community Counseling & Psychology Clinic at Texas A&M University-Commerce is a training facility in which master's level students receive supervised practical experience in assessment, intervention, and consultation. Students seeking licensure as school psychologists, psychological associates, or those desiring certification as educational diagnosticians, spend one to three semesters working in the clinic as they near the end of their formal training.

The Psychology Clinic operates in conjunction with the Community Counseling Center, which is the pedagogic arm of the doctoral program in counseling.
