Clinic Operating Hours

As an outpatient mental health clinic, the Marriage and Family Therapy Clinic operates on a schedule related to but separate from the SCSU academic calendar. Typically the clinic is closed for one week between semesters.  

Program Director Open Office Hours

 In addition to regular faculty office hours, monthly open office hours are scheduled with a goal of facilitating an open and transparent culture. Faculty, students, and staff are invited during this time to discuss concerns and receive advisement on how they could follow up on concerns within the program and University. Email levatinop1@southernct.edu to make an appointment.
