The Greater Kansas City Psychoanalytic Institute offers a free referral service for persons interested in psychoanalytic treatment. We are especially interested in, but not limited to, assisting those who might benefit from psychoanalysis but are unable to afford it at standard rates. Consultation also is available at no charge for mental health professionals who are considering referrals of their own clients for psychoanalysis and want help in assessing their suitability. All inquiries are handled in strict confidence.
If you wish to use this service, call the Institute at 816-512-7438, contact us through this website. Messages may be left at any time. Please mention the “referral service,” and be sure to include your name and telephone number, as we make all appointments by phone. The referral coordinator, an Institute faculty member, will return your call and offer you a brief telephone consultation in order to make appropriate referrals to analysts and psychotherapists in the community. All subsequent arrangements, including fees, are made between you and the analyst to whom you will be referred. If a treatment other than psychoanalysis seems to be indicated, the coordinator will help you find the appropriate resources.
