The Denver Psychodynamic Psychotherapy Outreach Referral Service

The Denver Psychoanalytic Society's Outreach Referral Service offers a referral service for people who are interested in receiving psychodynamic psychotherapy but are unable to pay full fee.

Psychodynamic psychotherapy is a form of talk therapy used to help a person gain increased personal insight and/or gain relief from emotional distress. People usually choose this form of treatment when they have not found answers on their own. Many people seek treatment simply because they desire to know themselves better, or in hopes of becoming more successful in such areas of their lives as love, work, relationships or parenting. Others engage in therapy for a variety of reasons including but not limited to prolonged sadness, anxiety, depression, sexual difficulties, interpersonal problems, physical symptoms without physical basis, and persistent feelings of loneliness or emptiness.

Psychodynamic psychotherapy focuses on developing awareness of feelings and thoughts initially outside the person's awareness. It usually helps a person learn to handle difficulties in a more adaptive manner, and it usually results in improved interpersonal relationships, greater satisfaction at work, increased authenticity, and greater insight into thoughts, feelings and behavior.

This kind of treatment is designed for those who believe that therapy may enhance the quality of their lives or help in resolving significant ongoing concerns and problems.

If you are interested in a referral for reduced-fee psychodynamic psychotherapy, contact the Denver Psychoanalytic Society at (303) 724-5455 and leave a voice mail message. A professional from the Outreach Referral Service will contact you to gather some preliminary information.

If it appears we can be of assistance, you will be referred to an experienced psychodynamic psychotherapist. You and the psychotherapist will form your own working relationship, collaboratively negotiating the goals of the therapy, the frequency of meetings, the fee, and all other parameters of the treatment. The fee will be scaled to your ability to pay and may be renegotiated as appropriate during the course of treatment.

All therapists participating in this program are experienced mental health professionals who are licensed within their own discipline and are members of the Denver Psychoanalytic Society.


In the case of an emergency, please dial 911 or visit your local hospital. 

                                             The referral service process takes time and is not intended for immediate care.
