The Referral Service of the Boston Psychoanalytic Society and Institute assists people of all ages seeking a non-urgent referral to a psychoanalyst or psychoanalytic therapist member of BPSI for treatment in the modality of psychoanalysis or psychoanalytically oriented psychotherapy. Members of BPSI are psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, and licensed mental health clinicians who all have additional training in psychoanalytic theory and practice; many of these professionals are currently in advanced training at BPSI, and some are graduates of one of BPSI’s advanced training programs. Many trainees are able to negotiate an adjusted fee.

BPSI Psychoanalysts and Psychotherapists provide treatment in private offices located throughout the Boston, North Shore, South Shore and Metro-West area. Fees and other treatment arrangements are made directly with the therapist providing the service.

Would you like to be referred to one of the clinicians on our referral service list? If so, please complete the referral form and a representative of our referral service will be in touch within seven business days to obtain the information needed to make a referral.

The Boston Psychoanalytic Society and Institute is not a clinic: if you are experiencing a clinical emergency, call 911 or go to your nearest emergency room.

For Mental Health Professionals seeking psychoanalysis as part of psychoanalytic training, referrals for adjusted fee psychoanalysis to BPSI training psychoanalysts can be made.
