Learn More About Therapy at The Psychotherapy Institute

The Psychotherapy Institute's 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.

The Psychotherapy Institute Staff Therapists

The Community Clinic is staffed by therapists who have advanced degrees in psychology, social work, counseling, or related mental health fields and are participating in TPI's Postgraduate Training Program.

Community Clinic staff work under the close supervision of marriage and family therapists, social workers, psychologists, and physicians. After completing their two-year training, many staff therapists continue working with their clients in private practice, so therapy can continue without interruption.
