In keeping with our comprehensive approach to wellness, the LCC provides 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 is designed to help you better manage or overcome your challenges and enable you to have more fulfilling relationships, be more successful at work and school, and improve your overall quality of life.

As a graduate training facility, Loyola University graduate students are trained to conduct comprehensive evaluations to best understand your unique needs and to work with you in developing a treatment plan that in order to develop a treatment plan tailored specifically to you. Our graduate student clinicians receive direct supervision and expertise from multiple professors who are licensed to practice psychology in Maryland.

In addition to offering individualized services that suit a range of mental health issues, the Psychology Division also offers specialized services, workshops, and trainings that target specific issues or concerns. Such programming is generally time-limited (a set number of weeks) and may only be offered at set days of the week or times of the year. For example, a group may run once or three times over the course of a year. Therapy groups and workshops offered have ranged in topic based on supervisor expertise and community needs, while others are ongoing. Recognizing the profound impact that grief, loss, and trauma can have on an individual, family, and community we offer specialized services in trauma prevention and intervention, including child grief groups, individual child trauma-focused therapy, and parent and caregiver training, and community workshops.
