*Quality mental health services at affordable rates*.  Located in Arlington, VA, The IPS Center for Psychological Services is an outpatient mental health facility providing clinical services to adults, adolescents, children, families  and couples. We are committed to providing the community with high quality, affordable mental health services that understand the emotional, biological, social, spiritual and psychological aspects of a person. Clients of any faith or background are welcome at the Center. At the heart of such treatment is a deep respect for the dignity of each person and a commitment to providing appropriate state-of-the-art services.  The IPS Center is part of the Clinical Psychology Psy.D. program operated by the Institute for the Psychological Sciences (IPS) of Divine Mercy University, a Catholic University of psychology and counseling.

Most importantly, we will celebrate daily Mass and visit the tombs of many great saints, such as St. Thomas More, St. Thomas Becket, St. John Fisher and. St. Edmund Campion.
