Licensed Psychoanalyst

A licensed psychoanalyst is a mental health professional who specializes in psychoanalysis, a form of psychotherapy that aims to help people gain insight into their unconscious thoughts and feelings, and how these may be impacting their behaviors and relationships.

Psychoanalysis is based on the idea that many psychological problems are caused by unconscious conflicts and repressed emotions that are rooted in early experiences, particularly in childhood. Through the process of psychoanalysis, individuals can work to gain a greater understanding of their unconscious processes and how these impact their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors.

Licensed psychoanalysts typically have a graduate degree in a mental health field such as psychology, social work, or counseling, and have completed specialized training in psychoanalysis. In addition to providing psychoanalysis to individuals, they may also work with couples, families, and groups.

The process of psychoanalysis typically involves meeting with a licensed psychoanalyst several times a week over a period of several years. During these sessions, the individual may explore their thoughts and feelings in great depth, often focusing on dreams, fantasies, and memories from their childhood. The goal is to help the individual gain a deeper understanding of themselves, their past experiences, and their current relationships, and to develop greater insight into their unconscious processes.

In addition to providing psychoanalysis, licensed psychoanalysts may also work in research or academia, or may provide supervision to other mental health professionals. They may also work in a variety of settings, such as private practice, hospitals, or community mental health centers.

Potential benefits of a free initial consultation

During this first session: potential clients have the chance to learn more about you and your approach before agreeing to work together.

Offering a free consultation will help you build trust with the client. It shows them that you want to give them a chance to make sure you are the right person to help them before they move forward. Additionally, you should also be confident that you can support your clients and that the client has problems that you can help them cope with. Also, you can avoid any ethical difficult situations about charging a client for a session in which you choose not to proceed based on fit.

We've found that people are more likely to proceed with therapy after a free consultation, as it lowers the barrier to starting the process. Many people starting therapy are apprehensive about the unknown, even if they've had sessions before. Our culture associates a "risk-free" mindset with free offers, helping people feel more comfortable during the initial conversation with a specialist.
