One of the realities of the LGBTQ+ community is poverty. Because of this, I offer income-based discounts to session fees, and low-cost groups.
Even with these discounts, it can be difficult for people to afford therapy. It is my firm belief that no one should be denied therapy for economic reasons. Because of this, I offer an anonymous sponsorship program with three different levels of assistance for clients. As a sponsor, your donation is used directly to offset fees for individuals who cannot afford the lowest sliding scale rate — it does not disappear into general overhead costs. Sponsorship funds will be distributed as cash payments into individual’s accounts. Donations are not tax-deductible, but they do a lot of good to people in need.
Because of confidentiality concerns, donors and recipients will not be aware of each other’s identities. Neither will someone’s rates go up if sponsorship funds cease to become available — so no one’s therapy is entirely dependent on a stranger’s ability to donate. Instead, their negotiated discount will remain in effect regardless of sponsorship status.
Funds are accepted from individuals and organizations.
The levels of sponsorship available are Group, Individual, and Sustaining.
GROUP: $80. This will allow one person to attend an 8-week group free of charge.
INDIVIDUAL: Any amount.
MONTHLY: A regular recurring credit card charge of any amount that will be used to offset individual or group costs.
