Dr. Laura Bryan is an assistant professor at Pfeiffer University and the clinic director of the Pfeiffer Institute Reach Clinic in Morrisville overseeing graduate students as they begin to see clients.
"We're seeing pretty much every issue you can imagine: depression, anxiety, divorce, parenting issues, all the stuff that can go on in peoples lives, we welcome that here," Bryan explained.
Pfeiffer Institute Reach provides low cost therapy clinics for individuals, families, and couples. Sessions run 50 minutes and costs $30. For students, the cost is $15 and there is also a sliding scale for anyone who may not be able to afford therapy.
"We're trying to be as accessible as we possibly can so they can get the help they need," Bryan said.
"The clinic has a duel purpose. It's for the clinicians to make sure they're getting the experience they need, that they're going to go out of here a really ethical and competent therapist. It's also the service to the community, so we're trying to balance all those things all the time."
All of the therapist interns are master's-level graduate students in the Marriage and Family Therapy Program at Pfeiffer University and all sessions are supervised by licensed faculty.
