About Our Services

The Psychological Services Center offers free, confidential counseling for all enrolled LIU-Brooklyn students. We’re here to help with all kinds of problems – whether they are life-changing, ordinary, or anything in between. No matter what you’re going through, talking about it can help. We have no session limits; the clinic is available to you for as long as you are enrolled at LIU.

The best way to reach us is by sending an email to bkln-psychservices@liu.edu or call us at 718-488-1266

The Psychological Services Center is now closed for new patients for the Summer. We will continue to see current patients until July 31st. If you would like to begin services in the Fall as a new patient, please contact us and we will put your name on a waiting list.

The Psychological Services Center is not a crisis center. If you are in need of immediate assistance, we suggest contacting one of the crisis services listed below. If this is an emergency, please call 911.

Please feel free to email us to begin counseling. We also have walk-in hours available Mondays 10am-4pm, Wednesdays 1pm-4pm and Thursdays 10am-4pm. For urgent matters or service during the summer, reach out to the Psychological Services Center on the Post Campus. 

To get started with counseling, please send us an email at bkln-psychservices@liu.edu and include your name and phone number. You will then be matched with a counselor with whom you’ll have a brief consultation (10-20 minutes), either by phone or in person, about what you are going through and what you are looking for. Through this screening, we can direct you to the resources that best fit your needs and goals. If your needs and goals involve ongoing counseling, you and a counselor will be matched to begin counseling in our clinic on LIU Brooklyn’s campus.

We also provide comprehensive psychological assessment to give you a detailed picture of how you work and what might help you get where you want to go. If you are interested in any or all of these services, please let us know! You can reach us at bkln-psychservices@liu.edu.
