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 - The Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy program is a service typically less intense than psychoanalysis. Our psychology externs work with clinic patients and will consult with our faculty on your case. Privacy and confidentiality will be respected. Psychology externs are advanced doctoral students in APA-accredited clinical or counseling psychology programs. This service requires a session commitment of two times per week during regular business hours (9-5 pm) from September through mid June. Fees are based on one’s ability to pay. There is no application. For more information or to express interest in this service, please email Dr. Maria Lechich, head of the Psychology Externship Program at email@example.com
