  • Weekly or bi-weekly therapy appointments that last 45-50 minutes.
  • A typical course of therapy lasts between 10-20 sessions, but you and your clinician can discuss your treatment goals and the right timeline for you.

Benefits of Psychological Evaluation

Psychological evaluations provide a structured, organized, and succinct description of an individual's current psychological functioning, including cognitive, behavioral, and emotional strengths and challenges. The evaluation includes a written report with recommendations for improvement or accommodations, when appropriate. We also provide verbal feedback about the results to explain findings and to give you the opportunity to ask questions. 

Evaluations are tailored to the individual but, in general, the process includes the following:

  • An initial intake appointment (via phone) to ensure we can provide you with the services you need.
  • Two to four appointments of a few hours each, although we can make scheduling accommodations for individuals who are out of state or have a lengthy commute to the center.
  • A clinical interview and an assessment that includes a range of psychological tests depending on the specific nature of the presenting issues or referral questions.
  • An integrated report within three to four weeks of your final assessment session; this report includes findings and helpful and practical recommendations (including suggestions for accommodations, as appropriate).
  • A feedback session where the clinician reviews results with you and gives you the opportunity to ask questions.

We may ask you to fill out forms ahead of time and/or bring school or medical records to the appointment.

Sport Psychology

SLU Sport Psychology Services provides athletic performance optimization for individual athletes and teams at Saint Louis University's Department of Athletics and to athletes and teams across the St. Louis region.

Individual services involve one-on-one meetings between an athlete and a sport psychology consultant (SPC). The length of time in sport psychological training varies and largely depends on the athlete’s goals. The Mindfulness-Acceptance-Commitment (MAC) protocol consists of about seven sessions of broad mental-skills training and is typically used for most athletes seeking to improve their mental performance in sport. However, athletes may choose to schedule one to two sessions that focus on specific skill development (e.g., confidence, relaxation, developing a mental warm-up). Student-athletes seek these services with a variety of goals and/or areas of development in mind. Some simply want to increase their mental toughness during sport, decrease the effect of negative self-talk, and improve their ability to reach a flow state (“Get into the Zone”). Other athletes may be experiencing barriers to performance such as anxiety, difficulties adjusting to a new team, a lack of confidence, concerns regarding motivation, or difficulties related to injury. These services are available to all SLU student-athletes.
