The Mel Bornstein Clinic for Psychoanalysis and Psychotherapy provides expert and confidential advice to persons seeking treatment or referral. Trained and experienced clinicians offer a number of services on-site, including consultations, evaluations, treatment, and referrals.

Psychoanalysts in training (referred to at MPI as Psychoanalytic Candidates) may be able to offer reduced fee psychoanalysis for those unable to afford private fees.  These services are rendered under the auspices of the Institute but conducted in the private office of the analyst in training.

Some analysts may offer flexible fee schedules and/or work within the limits of your insurance plan, though others may not.  Please contact us by phone (numbers above) to discuss your particular needs.
