Professional Consultation

TPI offers Professional Consultation to licensed psychotherapists through the Supervision Study Program. Your consultant will be a supervisor in the program and will work under the guidance of senior clinicians with expertise in psychotherapy supervision.

Training Programs

TPI hosts three Training Programs (Psychotherapy Training Program, Supervision Study Program, and Group Therapy Training Program) to support therapists at all stages of their development, whether a therapist is just out of graduate school and wants in-depth training in psychodynamic work and the opportunity to gain hours toward licensure, or a therapist is a seasoned therapist and wants to hone their skills in supervision or leading therapy groups. Our training programs offer the opportunity to be mentored by experienced clinicians.

Continuing Education

We also offer many Continuing Education opportunities for psychotherapists, including intimate and relevant Continuing Education courses, Case Conferences, large Symposia with leaders in the field, and professional year-long or multi-year Training Programs. Our programs are geared for therapists at various stages of professional development, including our Bridge Seminars which are open to therapists who have at least 20 years of clinical experience.


Membership is open to anyone with a recognized clinical degree or credential in a mental health field and provide access to a supportive community of psychotherapists as well as discounts on Continuing Education course fees and a subscription to our members-only bimonthly newsletter, Viewpoint. Learn more about membership benefits.

Community Clinic

Our Community Clinic in Berkeley offers sliding-scale psychotherapy to individual adults and couples. Therapy has no set time limit. Treatment may be long-term and extensive, leading to greater insight and emotional development, or brief and focused on a specific goal. Our Community Clinic therapists are active participants in our Psychotherapy Training Program.
