Psychotherapy Service

The Psychotherapy Service of WCSPP

We are now providing teletherapy

WCSPP provides psychoanalysis and psychotherapy at an affordable cost to children, adolescents, individual adults, and couples, addressing a range of emotional issues. WCSPP therapists are candidates who are enrolled in WCSPP’s training programs to advance their professional knowledge and skills in contemporary theories and techniques of in-depth, intensive psychotherapy. Candidates are Masters, PhD, PsyD or MD level practitioners. WCSPP therapists receive weekly supervision from senior faculty members who have extensive teaching, supervisory and clinical experience. They instruct our candidates within a contemporary psychodynamic framework towards a broad, deep and compassionate understanding of complex emotional relationships and experience.

Our fees are based on a “sliding scale” starting at $30 to help those with financial limitations. Upon receipt of your application, we will contact you to briefly discuss your needs over the phone. Please be aware that it may take approximately two weeks to process your application. We will consider your application thoughtfully to determine whether we can place you with a candidate in one of our training programs. We are not equipped to offer services to those in immediate crisis or those who seek short term counseling.

If you need immediate care, we recommend that you contact your local emergency center.
