About SFCP

Our Mission

The San Francisco Center for Psychoanalysis is dedicated to advancing the vitality and enduring value of psychoanalysis in Northern California and beyond.

The San Francisco Center for Psychoanalysis was organized in 2007, combining the San Francisco Psychoanalytic Institute & Society, founded in 1941, with the San Francisco Foundation for Psychoanalysis, founded in 1991. The SFCP is a not for profit organization with more than 200 practicing analysts and more than 45 candidates (psychoanalysts in training).

The Center provides an extensive training program in psychoanalysis. The Center also sponsors a large, vibrant Extension Division which offers classes and seminars to mental health professionals as well as to the general public. In addition, it maintains Low / Moderate Fee Referral Services for adults, children and adolescents as well as providing other mental health services and programs for the general community.
