- About UW
The mission of The Psychology Center is to provide affordable, quality mental health care to the campus community and area residents. As a training center for the Clinical Psychology Doctoral program at the University of Wyoming, all assessments and treatment at The Psychology Center are conducted by graduate student therapists under the direct supervision of a licensed clinical psychologist. The Faculty/Psychologists in the Psychology Center embrace an integrated care model that promotes collaboration with the client and other health professionals who are involved in the client's care. Therapists specialize in the use of empirically supported treatments that have been developed based on psychological science.
The Psychology Center provides both psychotherapy and assessment services for children and adults. Not all problems are appropriate for our training center and some cases may be referred elsewhere for services. Special areas of interest at the UWPC include, but are not limited to:
Patient Bill of Rights:
When you start psychotherapy at the Psychology Center, you will have certain rights in the process. Please watch this video for the Patient Bill of Rights to learn more about your rights and how to talk to your therapist about your treatment.
The Psychology Center is involved in furthering our understanding of Psychological problems and their treatments through research. Clients may be invited to participate in research projects. This participation is not required to receive services at the Psychology Center.

No surprise medical billing and good faith estimate for services:
Under the No Surprise Medical Billing Act (cms.gov/nosurprises), you are protected against surprise medical bills. Because the UWPC is a self-pay clinic, you have a right to receive a good faith estimate explaining how much your services would cost. Use the following link to review our notices on No Surprise Medical Bills and Good Faith Estimates.
In accordance with our professional ethics and state law, our services are confidential. We do not disclose the identity of our clients or anything concerning them without their written permission. We provide clients with written information about the exceptions to confidentiality. These circumstances involve our legal requirements to report child abuse and neglect and to protect someone who is threatened with physical harm. Preventing suicide is also a situation in which confidentiality may be broken.
To learn more about our services, please call the Psychology Center at (307) 766-2149. When you call, one of our staff will conduct a telephone intake interview in order to facilitate an appropriate client-therapist match. If no one is available, leave your name and phone number and we will contact you as soon as possible. The Psychology Center accepts new cases between September and April and has reduced staff during the summer months. In the case of an emergency, please contact Ivinson Memorial Hospital at (307) 742-0285.
