NCSB-ODU Clinic Website
In partnership with the Norfolk Community Services Board, the NCSB-ODU clinic serves as a training site for graduate-level master's and doctoral students who provide counseling services for the uninsured and underinsured residents of Norfolk.
The NCSB-ODU Clinic is dedicated to promoting client welfare by providing counseling services to uninsured and underinsured residents of Norfolk. The counseling center is also a training site for graduate counseling students, and as such, values the training and equipping of burgeoning professionals by providing close and intensive supervision, training, and support. Finally, this counseling center prizes the partnership with the NCSB and so strives to maintain a clear and healthy relationship with the NCSB and its various departments.
The Norfolk CSB, in partnership with Old Dominion University, established the NCSB-ODU Clinic in the summer of 2008 to provide affordable counseling services for clients with acute situational mental health problems. While services are provided by ODU master's and doctoral level student clinicians, the clinic is housed at the Olney Road Counseling Center, where a multi-disciplinary team of Licensed Professional Counselors, Licensed Clinical Social Workers, and a Licensed Clinical Psychologist are available for consultation with ODU students, and potential referral.
