The CWRU Psychology Clinic is accepting new referrals.

However, due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we are currently offering psychotherapy exclusively through technology-assisted services. These include telephone calls and video-conference sessions. These tools can make it convenient to discuss issues with a therapist, but there are additional risks to confidentiality when using any form of electronic communication.

Please contact our office by leaving a detailed voice message at (216) 368-0719

or by sending an email message to

A member of our staff will get back in touch with you shortly.
