Thank you very much for your interest in the Kieffer E. Frantz Clinic at the C. G. Jung Institute of Los Angeles. This letter is to provide information about the Clinic and to acquaint you with the application procedure for placement in the Clinic. All information provided during the application process will be utilized in assessing appropriateness for placement, and identifying a suitable therapist. If an applicant does not get placed with a therapist, all information provided to the Clinic will be disposed of in accordance with state and ethical guidelines for the destruction of confidential information.
The Clinic offers Jungian therapy and analysis at a reduced fee to qualified individuals who cannot afford the cost of private fees. Acceptance as a Clinic patient requires one to pay for, and to attend, a minimum of one scheduled session per week. Regular attendance results in a more optimal therapeutic experience and provides needed funds for the ongoing expenses of our non-profit Clinic. If you are unable to attend a session, for any reason, you remain responsible for payment for that hour. The only exception to this policy occurs when the therapist is away or for some other reason cancels the session. You will not be billed for that hour. Clinic fees range between $35 and $80 per session and the fee is determined by monthly household income. The Clinic will not accept private insurance, MediCal or Medicare as sole payment for sessions.
Since there are a limited number of places in the Clinic, applicants are screened to select those who would most benefit from services offered by the Clinic. The first step in applying to the Clinic is to complete and return the Adult Intake Application Packet, Standard Authorization for Treatment and Release of Information Form, and the Limits to Confidentiality Form. Due to the quarantine, we have also added the Telemedicine Informed Consent Form to be filled out. After receipt of this information, it will be reviewed and forwarded on to your therapist. You will be contacted by phone or mail within three weeks of receipt of your completed application.
If you are accepted to the Clinic, wait time for assignment to a therapist varies from immediately to six months.
