NYPSI’s Treatment Center was founded in 1948 to provide low-fee therapy to individuals in the community who couldn’t otherwise afford high quality treatment. Since that time, thousands of people have received clinical services through the Treatment Center. While the Treatment Center does not accept insurance, Medicaid, or Medicare, no one is turned away because of limited financial resources. Where fee is not an issue or the person has health insurance, the Treatment Center can also provide referrals to clinicians in private practice.
The Treatment Center offers psychotherapy and psychoanalysis for adults, adolescents, and children. Psychological testing is also available. The Treatment Center does not provide psychotropic medication.
A preliminary charge of $40 covers the administrative costs of filing the application and the entire intake process. At the end of the intake, the person receives a recommendation for therapy based on their issues and needs.
Psychotherapy is provided at the Treatment Center by psychology Externs, Interns, or Postdoctoral Fellows, all of whom are supervised by psychoanalysts with the highest level of clinical training.
Psychological testing at the Treatment Center is also conducted by psychology Externs, Interns, or Postdoctoral Fellows under expert supervision.
Psychoanalysis is provided by psychoanalytic candidates, all of whom are supervised by psychoanalysts especially qualified for the training of psychoanalysts. On occasion, psychoanalysis is offered by a graduate psychoanalyst.
