Vision and Mission
The mission of the Downing Clinic is to provide low-cost, mental health counseling services to UNR students and those in the Reno community. Master’s level, student interns provide individual, couples, family counseling, and play therapy under the supervision of fully licensed individuals to ensure quality client care.
Our goal is to provide a helping environment in which clients feel heard, valued, and represented while being engaged in the process of change. Additionally, we seek to demonstrate ethical self-development for counselors which fosters a caring, warm climate for clientele.
