Sliding-scale resources

My group practice, Union Square Psychotherapy, offers therapy on a sliding scale, and free initial intakes. If you’re interested in scheduling a 45-minute initial session, you can do so here.

I also offer therapy on a sliding scale individually, but at the moment, my sliding-scale slots are full – I’m not currently accepting reduced fee patients.

I don’t accept insurance, but I can help you get reimbursed by your insurer if it covers out-of-network benefits. If we are not a match, you have other options:

I’m a member of the Contemporary Freudian Society (formerly the Freudian Society of New York). I have many trusted colleagues, and you can call CFS’s clinical referral service at 212-752-7883, where you can be referred to therapists with credentials and experience including LP (licensed psychoanalyst), MSW, Psy.D, MD, and PhD.

This is a list of low-cost and sliding-scale therapy and analysis providers in New York City. I update it frequently, and hope you find it useful. If you know of any such resources that I’ve omitted, I hope you’ll use my contact form (at the bottom of the page) to let me know.
