Since 1932, the Institute for Psychoanalysis has provided psychotherapy and psychoanalysis to individuals and couples in Chicago and the surrounding suburbs. The Adult Psychotherapy Clinic, a reduced fee psychotherapy clinic within the Institute, employs approximately 15 licensed psychotherapists and a group of experienced student interns, offering consultation and psychotherapy to adult individuals and couples.  We routinely work at a discounted rate with people who are seeking help for difficulties with anxiety, depression, relationship problems, and a wide variety of other concerns.
 
After looking through the information on this page, we encourage you to take advantage of a free phone consultation.  During this initial conversation, we can discuss your specific situation, and we can address any questions or concerns that you might have about psychotherapy. If it appears that our clinic is a suitable option for you, given your present concerns, then you will have the option of scheduling an appointment with us at our offices downtown. 
 
You will also have the option of obtaining a quality referral to an alternative clinic, if we determine together that we cannot offer you the form of therapy that is best suited to your needs.
 
Unfortunately, this website is not prepared to meet the needs of individuals who are seeking emergency attention, custody evaluations, hospitalization, inpatient care, or outpatient day programs.  For help finding outpatient day programs or obtaining a custody evaluation, please contact a mental health agency in your area. If you are currently in a state of crisis and/or need immediate medical attention, please call 911 or go to your local emergency room.  
 
It might seem difficult to find a sensitive, intelligent, well-trained clinician at an affordable rate.  We look forward to helping you navigate the mental health field and to assisting you in finding an excellent therapist who meets your specific needs.  Please call us at (312) 922-7474 to arrange a phone consultation with a staff therapist.    
 
 
Sincerely,  
 
The Staff of the Adult Psychoanalytic Psychotheraphy Clinic at the Chicago Institute for Psychoanalysis
