E. M. Lippett Psychoanalytic Referral Service

The E.M. Lippett Psychoanalytic Referral Service provides referrals for psychoanalysis and psychoanalytic psychotherapy for adults, adolescents, and children in the San Diego area.

Location and Fees: Treatment is conducted in therapists' offices located throughout San Diego County. Fees are arranged directly with your therapist.


Evaluation: You and the clinician with whom you consult will discuss a fee for the evaluation session. There is no standard fee. Every effort is made to have an evaluation at a fee level which is realistic and reasonable for both the patient and the clinician.

Treatment: The treatment fee will be determined at a rate that is mutually acceptable to both parties. All clinicians are licensed, practicing mental health professionals who are either graduates of the San Diego Psychoanalytic Center's programs or currently engaged in post- graduate training in psychoanalysis or psychoanalytic psychotherapy.

To Get a Referral: Please email: letstalk@sdpsychoanalytic.org. You will be contacted promptly to arrange a consultation appointment. After one or more sessions, the therapist will talk with you about what type of treatment will be most helpful. You will have an opportunity to discuss and ask questions about the recommendation. The evaluation process involves talking about yourself and the problems and concerns that led you to seek assistance.
