The Office of Applied Psychological Services (OAPS) is a mental health clinic in the Psychology Department at the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC). We offer psychotherapy and psychological testing using approaches that are based on scientific theory and supported by scientific evidence, with an emphasis on cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) techniques. OAPS serves the UIC community, including faculty, staff, and students, as well as those living or working in the greater Chicago area.
OAPS offers therapy for adults, children, families, and couples. We help individuals make changes that will improve their relationships and personal functioning, and enhance their ability to deal with various life stressors, including career transition. We provide psychological testing services to adults and children experiencing difficulties in school, problems in living, or questions about career choice. Clinicians at OAPS are advanced graduate students in UIC's Ph.D. Program in Clinical Psychology, which is accredited by the American Psychological Association. Graduate student clinicians are supervised by Ph.D.s in clinical psychology, most of whom are members of the UIC faculty.
We have also created a list of additional career advising services available in the greater Chicagoland area.
