Our Mission

The mission of the Schiele Clinic is to provide a community resource for high quality, in-depth psychotherapy and psychoanalysis with fees based on the client's ability to pay.

About Us

The Schiele Clinic of the St. Louis Psychoanalytic Institute provides high quality, in-depth assessment and treatment, from psychoanalysis and individual psychotherapy to family and couples therapy, all available at a fee based on the client's ability to pay. The Clinic offers assessment services in order to evaluate the nature of the problem and to explore appropriate treatment methods and resources.

Our Patients

Individuals call our clinic for a variety of reasons; they may be struggling with relationship or family issues, concerns about eating or drinking patterns, feelings of anxiety, the psychological effects of a physical illness, personal and interpersonal difficulties, depression or stress. They may be victims of abuse or trauma, children of alcoholics, in a life transition, or experiencing grief or loss.

The Schiele Clinic Referral Network

The Clinic has a network of over 75 therapists offering treatment throughout the region. Network therapists are Institute faculty, analytic candidates or graduates of the Advanced Psychodynamic Psychotherapy Program currently in private practice and dedicated to their own continuing education, who have expressed a desire to support the mental health needs of the St. Louis community by serving as a part of our clinic network. Our network therapists average 25 years of work experience in the field.
