The Association of Psychology Training Clinics is the national organization for directors of psychology training clinics. Its members are directors of clinics that are typically associated with pre-doctoral graduate training programs in professional psychology – clinical, community, counseling, clinical child, and school psychology – at regionally accredited universities. The organization’s mission is to support and represent the interests of its member directors and their clinics.
Heidi Zetzer is a Lecturer with Security of Employment (LSOE) in the Department of Counseling, Clinical, and School Psychology (CCSP) and the Director of the Hosford Counseling & Psychological Services Clinic, which is the department’s psychology training clinic.

In addition to running the clinic, Dr. Zetzer teaches practicum and supervision courses, supervises student clinicians and supervisors, and provides psychotherapy to community clients. She also provides continuing education programs on positive psychology, evidence-based practice, cultural competence, and supervision. Dr. Zetzer earned an M.A. in Counseling Psychology from Ohio State University in 1986 and a Ph.D. in Counseling Psychology from the University of California, Santa Barbara in 1990.
