Financially Accessible Therapy

What to Expect & How it Works 

Offering Financially Accessible Therapy is a way of ensuring mental health support is available to all. We understand that seeking therapy shouldn't be hindered by financial constraints. We off therapy at a low cost provided by our Student Therapists/Intern-Associates, allowing for individuals from diverse economic backgrounds.

We believe that everyone deserves the opportunity to receive the support they need to thrive emotionally and psychologically, regardless of their financial circumstances.
