Supervising and Training Analysts

Directory of SFCP Training Analysts

Below is a list of Training Analysts, organized by geographic area.

In keeping with SFCP’s philosophy of accessibility, many SFCP Training Analysts offer reduced fee analysis ($100 or more) to candidates.

In accordance with SFCP’s commitment to making psychoanalytic training more affordable and accessible to individuals affected by race-based and class-based systemic inequities which have previously served as barriers to pursuing analytic training, SFCP is now offering affordable analysis (less than $100) to help cover costs of analytic training for BIPOC candidates and candidates with financial need. 

Training Analysts who are available for affordable analysis (less than $100) in Fall 2023 have an * next their name; those with availability in January 2024 have ** next to their name. Training analysts with availability for low fee (more than $100) analysis have a + next to their name; those with availability for low fee (more than $100) after January 2024 have a ++.

Candidates may also consult the SFCP Analytic Training Program Webpage to see Training and Supervising Analyst Availability for full fee, low fee and affordable fee analysis.    

To learn more, please see a more detailed description of the Affordable Training Analysis and Supervision Program on the SFCP Website.
