NORMAN —

“People don’t think of Norman as having the needs that they do,” Frey said. “But the needs always surpass the available resources.”

Another organization the clinic has just started to work with is Cimarron Alliance, an organization in support of LGBT equality. The clinic provides groups for those grieving a the loss of someone as well as groups for LGBT families. Additionally, since the summer of 2013, counselors from the clinic have given free talks through the new Spreaker’s Bureau about various topics. The clinic has provided this service at the Women’s Resource Center, OKC campus of Oklahoma State University, and Noble Public Schools. Topics have ranged from basic interview skills to listening and communicating.

“The most important part of our work with these nonprofits is that we don’t have an agenda. Our goal is to do what they need us to do,” Frey said. “We can wear all these different hats —researchers, counselors, speakers — we are there to help based on the organization’s needs.”

To schedule an appointment with the Clinic, call 325-2914.
