Welcome to the UAB Counseling Clinic

The Counseling Program in the UAB School of Education and Human Sciences offers affordable counseling services to the residents of Jefferson County and the Greater Birmingham Metro Area through its Community Counseling Clinic. Well-trained graduate students, supervised by experienced faculty members, conduct all counseling sessions. Our counselors are compassionate and effective, and our services are collaborative, goal-oriented, and personalized for each client. Since our clinic is also a teaching center, all counseling sessions are recorded so that the Counseling program faculty can review and assess client progress, monitor the need for medical services, and evaluate clinical interventions.
