What services do you provide?

We provide assessment, counseling, and psychotherapy for children, adolescents, adults, families, and couples. We are providing telehealth only, at least through the end of the Fall semester (December 2021) when we will reassess. Services are available for a variety of problems, including stress, depression, anxiety, adjustment issues, relationship difficulties, sleep problems, childhood conduct problems, and other personal concerns.

Because we are a training clinic, we are not able to provide services to families with ongoing domestic violence or to individuals who are suicidal, have current problems with drugs or alcohol, or have a serious mental illness and will make referrals as appropriate. The clinic director and supervising psychologist will determine the appropriateness and availability of services for all clients based on available resources, student training considerations, and other professional and ethical considerations.

Who can receive services?

We serve residents of San Bernardino and surrounding communities. We also provide services to CSUSB students, faculty, and staff, but you do not need to be affiliated with the university to be seen. However, current CSUSB students typically choose to be seen at Counseling & Psychological Services, which provides free therapy for CSUSB students year-round. 

Who provides services?

Graduate students from the Department of Psychology's Masters in Clinical/Counseling Program provide counseling and psychological services under the supervision of a licensed psychologist from the Department of Psychology.

How do I schedule an appointment?

For more information or to schedule an appointment, please call us at (909) 537-5569 and leave a message. The clinic assistant will return your call, answer any questions, and if appropriate, schedule you for an intake appointment with Dr. Forcino, the director of the Community Counseling Center. Dr. Forcino will match new clients with a therapist and supervisor who can best meet their needs.

What else should I know? 

All counseling sessions are confidential, except as is excluded by law. Clients typically meet with their individual counselor once a week for 50 minutes. The length of counseling is not limited; if advisable, clients may begin in August and continue until mid-May when the Center closes for the summer. Counseling services are provided on a sliding scale fee schedule.

The Center is committed to the ethical principles and standards of the American Psychological Association (APA) and to all applicable legal statutes. The clinic is philosophically guided by a commitment to providing counseling and psychological services that are high-quality, culturally appropriate, and evidence-based.
