The Older Adult Counseling Center

Last updated 10/08/2021

The Older Adult Counseling Center is housed within the Psychology Services Center at USC (SGM 1030).  We are a non-profit service delivering high-quality evidence-based care to older adults and their families. We offer therapeutic services for older adults and their families to help:

  • Older couples facing changes in their relationship, e.g., when one has a serious physical illness or disability
  • Loss and bereavement
  • Families caring for an older adult with cognitive impairment
  • Other issues that challenge older individuals and their families

The Psychology Services Center serves as a teaching clinic for USC doctoral students earning their Ph.D. in clinical psychology.  Services are typically provided through a team approach in which students work closely with a supervisor who is a Ph.D. psychologist—either a faculty member in our program or a clinical associate. If you are a client or family member interested in our services, please call the main clinic number (213-740-1600) to complete a screening and ask any questions you might have.
