About

Who we are

Director of the Psychological Clinic: Thomas Harding, Ph.D.
Director of Clinical Training, Psychology Department: Steven Lynn, Ph.D.

The Psychological Clinic operates within the Department of Psychology at Binghamton University. Its major objectives are to provide psychological services to the local community and to serve as a training facility supporting the University's doctoral program in clinical psychology.

The Clinic offers psychotherapy and behavior therapy for adults, children, adolescents, couples, families, and groups for a broad range of behavioral and psychological problems. The Clinic is oriented toward short-term intervention, although longer treatment programs are undertaken. A variety of treatment approaches and techniques may be used, depending on the circumstances of each client.

 *** During the Spring 2021 semester, The Psychological Clinic will be open with therapists providing treatment sessions remotely (e.g., using the doxy.me platform).  Psychological assessments for individuals 18 years and older will be conducted using a hybrid approach with some aspects being performed remotely and, depending upon the nature of the assessment, some tasks completed in-person, within the Clinic.  A set of screeing and safety protocols will be carefully  followed for all in-person sessions.  Details regarding this process will be explained when scheduling.  Phone intakes continue to be performed as usual.  For additional information, please call 607-777-2103.  Messages and inquiries are typically responded to within 24 hours.***

Psychological Assessment Services

 The Clinic offers a variety of psychological evaluation services for children, adolescents
and adults. Dr. Adam Krantweiss’ group focuses on the assessment of ADHD and
learning disabilities in adolescents and adults, exploring differential diagnoses and
providing treatment suggestions and recommendations for academic accommodation.

Evaluations supervised by Dr. Harding within the Clinic focus on
cognitive/neuropsychological, mental health/diagnostic, forensic, disability, and fitness
for duty issues in adolescents and adults and learning/attentional problems in children
ages 8 and older.

Group Therapy

The Clinic is in the process of establishing groups that focus on Dialectical Behavior
Therapy (DBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) for anxiety and
depression; and Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT) for trauma and loss. Depending
upon need, one or more of these groups may be available at a given time.
