Fee for Service Psychotherapist & Post-Degree (LMSW/LCSW/PhD/PsyD) Fellowships at the Karen Horney Clinic, NYC

Karen Horney Clinic


The Karen Horney Clinic is pleased to offer a fee for service psychotherapist position, which includes enrollment in a 2-year psychodynamic psychotherapy post-degree training program. This program is for social workers and psychologists (LMSW, LCSW, PhD, PsyD) interested in psychodynamic and psychoanalytic work. The Karen Horney Clinic's mission is to offer low-cost psychoanalytic and psychotherapeutic services to individuals from all backgrounds and to provide training and opportunities for advanced mental health professionals. More information on the Karen Horney Clinic can be found at our website:

Clinical Experience

The Clinic serves a wide range of patients in terms of demographics and diagnosis. This is primarily an adult-orientated program; however opportunities for child and adolescent work may be available. Each psychotherapy session is 45 minutes in length and patients are seen at least once per week. Fellows are expected to have a minimum of 12 sessions scheduled per week. The Clinic is open Monday - Friday 9am – 9pm and fellows can schedule patients at their convenience. However, one evening until 9pm per week is required. In addition, patient hours must not conflict with didactic hours.

Didactics and Supervision

Beyond weekly individual and group supervision therapists enrolled in the training program attend a psychodynamic psychotherapy course, trauma class, staff meetings, and rounds, at no charge. Didactics and group supervision take place Wednesdays 10am – 2pm. There is an additional Case Seminar provided on Thursdays 1:15pm – 2:15pm, which is open to some fellows. Therefore, there are about 5 hours of didactics and supervision each week. Didactics formally begin in September 2017, however the post-degree training can start on a rolling basis before that time.


This is a fee-for-service position with no additional benefits. We are an OMH certified clinic; therefore hours are countable towards licensure. We are asking for a 2 year commitment, at minimum, given that we are a long-term psychodynamic clinic prioritizing patient care.
