The Clinic of the NYU Postdoctoral Program is the clinical training facility of the Program. We have been providing adult therapeutic services to the community for almost 6 decades. We offer 2 types of services: contemporary psychoanalysis and psychoanalytic psychotherapy. Both services are for individuals unable to afford private practice fees. Clinic fees are arranged on a sliding scale according to the patient’s income. Usually our services are in high demand and during certain seasons we cannot accommodate all applications. If that is the case, then we try to provide appropriate referrals.
Our services are:
1. Psychoanalysis - a form of psychotherapy for in-depth understanding of one's mental life and/or ongoing, complex emotional problems in living. Usually, people seeking psychoanalysis have had prior psychotherapy but have not well resolved their concerns. The program candidates who work with clinic patients consult with the faculty of the program. They all hold a doctoral degree and are licensed in their mental health profession (i.e., psychology, psychiatry). They will be consulting with our faculty on your case. Privacy and confidentiality are respected. This service requires of you a session commitment of 3 times per week for about 2 years. For information and an application, please email Clinic Director Spyros D. Orfanos, Ph.D., ABPP at firstname.lastname@example.org.
2. Psychoanalytic psychotherapy - a service typically less intense than psychoanalysis. Psychology Externs work with clinic patients. Our Psychology Externs are advanced students from clinical psychology doctoral programs. They will be consulting with our faculty on your case. Privacy and confidentiality are respected. This service requires of you a session commitment of 2 times per week for about 9 months. For information and an application, please email the Head of the Psychology Externship Program Maria Lechich, Ph.D. at email@example.com
