A free service of the Psychoanalytic Center of the Carolinas

To request assistance with a referral
for psychoanalytic psychotherapy or psychoanalysis
in the Chapel Hill, Durham or Raleigh area 

CALL (919) 685-1956

A psychoanalytic therapist will take an in-depth approach to understanding your concerns about emotions, self-image, work-life, and relationships. The Psychoanalytic Referral Service is designed to help you find a psychoanalyst or psychoanalytically-oriented therapist who is a good match for your particular circumstances.

Please note: This is not a crisis line or an emergency service. If you are in crisis or in danger of harming yourself or anyone else, please call 911. Or go to your nearest hospital emergency room and ask to speak with the psychiatrist on call.

You may leave a message on our 24hour answering service at (919) 6851956. A licensed mental health professional will call you back within three business days. Please leave your phone number, times that you are available, and any necessary cautions about our leaving a message for you. We recognize that confidentiality is important, and we respect your privacy. Because your message will be relayed by email or phone, please do not include information that you would consider to be highly confidential.

In a telephone consultation, we will discuss the problems that led you to seek help and the kind of help you have in mind. We will answer questions you have regarding psychoanalytic treatment. We will try to match you with a private therapist, clinic or program that best meets your needs. This may involve some research and a call back to you with referral contact information. 

There is no charge for our telephone referral service. Fees charged for in-person appointments will vary among individual therapists. In some cases therapists may adjust their fee, based on your financial situation
