Confidential psychoanalysis and psychotherapy for adults, adolescents and children at reasonable fees.
After a brief pause to take stock of this extraordinary situation - the COVID-19 pandemic - and gather some experience with online treatment and consultation, we are reopening our Consultation and Treatment Referral Service for applications.
We will continue to offer the highest quality long-term psychotherapy and psychoanalysis, at substantially reduced fees, conducted by outstanding professional therapists in our advanced post-graduate therapy programs.
We usually offer in-person consultations which generally lead to continuing therapies. In the current circumstances, we are instead now offering video consultations, conducted over HIPAA (data privacy) compliant platforms. We hope that these too will generally continue as long-term therapies that will help you get to the roots of your difficulties. Once both therapists and applicants can again meet safely in-person, we hope that you will continue therapy in that optimal form.
Please submit an application by following the links on this page, and a PANY representative will be in touch with you soon. If applications outnumber our currently available therapists you may be offered the option of a wait-list, and we will discuss that with you.
Treatment for Healthcare Responders
A SPECIAL INVITATION TO HEALTHCARE WORKERS AFFECTED BY COVID-19
As part of our longstanding commitment to the NYC community to offer high quality psychotherapy at accessible fees, we would like to extend a special invitation to hospital and healthcare workers affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Many of our very experienced faculty and advanced training candidates have volunteered to see affected hospital and healthcare workers for talk therapy at a nominal fee. That means at whatever fee you can afford (depending on your circumstances and our availability).
Our Consultation and Treatment Service is also waiving our usual $50 processing fee for these applications.
Working in healthcare settings at the moment is even more demanding than usual, often outright traumatic. Talking to someone about your experiences can be very helpful in coping with these stresses now and in the future.
As many of us have trained and worked in hospitals and clinics throughout the NYC area, we recognize the great number of important people who contribute to patient care beyond doctors and nurses, so we would like to emphasize that our invitation extends to any worker in a healthcare setting who has been affected by providing treatment or supportive services to COVID patients.
Here are some important things to consider before submitting an application: We are currently offering treatment by telehealth, which means video in most cases. We are not offering in-person treatment at the moment for safety reasons. We do not offer consultations for medication treatment: our expertise is in talk therapy. We cannot provide emergency services, so if you are thinking of hurting yourself please take immediate steps to keep yourself safe by calling 911 or going to your nearest hospital emergency room. We are not a hospital department or government agency, so our availability is limited and we cannot guarantee that everyone who applies will be seen for a consultation or for eventual treatment.
If you have been affected by the COVID pandemic as a healthcare worker and are interested in talk therapy as a way to help you cope with these experiences, please submit an application form via the links on this page. Please note that you are an affected healthcare worker in your application. One of our therapists will be in touch soon.
The Psychoanalytic Association of New York (PANY), affiliated with NYU School of Medicine, offers reduced fee psychoanalysis and psychotherapy to adults, adolescents and children in the New York metropolitan area. Treatment is provided by members of the Institute community -- psychiatrists, psychologists, clinical social workers, and professionals in allied mental health disciplines. Most treatments are conducted by clinical trainees who are in advanced training in psychoanalysis and psychoanalytic therapy at PANY.
Psychoanalysis is an intensive treatment, usually occurring three to five times weekly. It addresses a wide variety of emotional problems such as anxiety, depression, work difficulties, troubled relationships, sexual concerns, and issues of self-esteem. It is based on clinical and scientific evidence that individuals are often unaware of factors that shape their emotions and behavior. Unconscious influences can produce specific symptoms or more general emotional distress. Psychoanalytic treatment is a therapeutic partnership focused on helping each patient become aware of the underlying sources of his or her difficulties- not just intellectually but also emotionally, in ways that lead to deep and lasting changes in the person’s life. A consultation can help determine whether psychoanalysis is the appropriate treatment for you.
PANY also offers a less intensive form of therapy -- psychoanalytic psychotherapy- which usually occurs once or twice weekly and is based on the same principles as psychoanalysis.
Subject to availability, we provide psychoanalysis and psychotherapy in Spanish, French, German, Urdu, Arabic and Korean. Korean senior candidates are available to work with native-speaking Korean clients.
Treatment is provided by members of the Institute community -- psychiatrists, psychologists, clinical social workers, and professionals in allied mental health disciplines -- who are in advanced training at IPE in psychoanalysis and psychoanalytic therapy and who speak Korean as a first language.

The $50 application fee (waived for members of the NYU community) covers processing of your application by PANY and an in-person consultation, if referred to one of our therapists. If the consultation becomes extended because of missed appointments, cancellation on short notice, or significant lateness, the consulting therapist may charge a mutually agreeable fee for any additional sessions needed to complete the consultation. The therapist who performs the consultation will discuss this with you, should the situation arise.
PANY offers both psychoanalysis and psychotherapy at well below usual and customary rates. Beyond the maximum three consultation visits, fees for psychoanalysis and psychotherapy are discussed between patient and therapist and are based on consideration of individual financial circumstances, including income and insurance. Fees begin at $50 per session for psychotherapy. Due to the greater frequency of sessions in psychoanalysis consideration is made for the weekly expense of treatment. In some instances, the fee per session for psychoanalysis may be less than the $50 per session minimum psychotherapy fee.
Most of our therapists are not in-network providers on insurance panels. We have a limited number of therapists who accept Medicare, and our therapists do not accept Medicaid. It is important to note that treatment within network is not always the best or most affordable option. Insurance plans may have high co-payments and offer a limited number of sessions, even with an in-network provider. Please check to see if your plan offers out-of-network coverage for mental health treatment.
If we cannot match you with a PANY therapist within your insurance network, we will try to find a therapist in CTS who will be able to work with you at a reduced fee, sometimes at the same rate as many copays. Ultimately, fees for treatment will be determined by you and your therapist, taking into consideration the specifics of your financial situation.
We do not offer consultation for medication management as a stand-alone service. Medication needs may be assessed during consultation or in an ongoing treatment. Some of our therapists are psychiatrists who can prescribe medication. Non-MD therapists can offer help in arranging for medication referrals.
Download the application directly from our website. It can also be emailed, faxed, or mailed to you. The $50 application fee may be mailed to our office or paid online via Paypal (does not require a Paypal account - may also use credit card, debit, or e-check). If you are a member of the NYU community- student, faculty, or staff- the application fee is waived. After completing the written application, you will be put in touch with a member of our service for a brief telephone screening. The phone screening is a preliminary discussion about your treatment needs. We will then arrange for you to meet with one of our therapists in consultation, usually in his or her private office. The consultation is an opportunity to discuss your particular situation and interest in treatment in greater depth.
The consulting therapist will assist you in considering available treatment options. Depending on the consulting therapist’s assessment of your needs, she or he may offer to continue to work with you or may suggest referral to another therapist. We do our best to match each applicant with a therapist who meets his or her needs. If we are unable to match an applicant with a therapist from within PANY, we will provide assistance with referrals to clinics outside of our Institute.
Treatment and therapists available through the PANY Consultation and Treatment Service:
Depending on availability, you will be contacted about a phone screening within a week of receiving your completed application. In-person consultations usually occur over a period of one to three weeks, with treatment generally beginning soon after.
Please note: we do not provide emergency care or immediate treatment. In the event of a psychiatric or life-threatening emergency, please go to your nearest emergency room or call 911.
