Low Cost Psychotherapy Supervision Service

Diane Goldkopf, Ph.D., DirectorThe Low Cost Psychotherapy Supervision Service is a unique opportunity for New York State licensed mental health professionals in private practice to work together in supervision with an experienced interpersonally/relationally-oriented psychoanalyst from the William Alanson White Institute.


The program is designed for practitioners who wish to expand their clinical skills and develop their personal treatment style within a supportive and reflective supervisory relationship. Psychotherapists at early, middle and advanced levels of experience and career development are equally encouraged to apply. Individual supervision in collaboration with a qualified faculty member of the White Institute will be responsive to the goals and needs of the particular supervisee.


The service is intended to enable you to work with a wider patient population, explore the interplay of transference and countertransference, and deepen your grasp of psychodynamic case formulation. Issues to be addressed can include: differential diagnoses; the therapeutic contract; stages of treatment; enactments; transference and countertransference; and therapeutic impasses and stalemates.


The Low Cost Psychotherapy Supervision Service is not in itself a postgraduate training program. Instead, each supervision experience will build upon the supervisee's previous understanding of clinical theory and process and offer alternative up-to date perspectives on therapeutic action.


Prerequisite: Applicant's licensed scope of practice must include the private practice of psychotherapy or psychoanalysis. The applicant is required to document professional liability insurance and current New York State license registration.
