Financial Philosophy

"I believe everyone deserves and should have access to mental health care, and I do everything I can to make sure that’s true. I offer services to all folks, regardless of the ability to pay. 


I take most insurance plans. If you don’t have insurance, I’m happy to help you get it (if you want it). If you don't have insurance, you can use sliding scale pricing. If you are at or below the Federal Poverty Rate, and do not have insurance, your services are pro bono.


I also accept CareCredit.


There is never money shame in my office. You pay what you can afford. Some folks pay more and some folks pay less. If someone is having financial struggles, we will figure it out. No one gets turned away." -- Seal Dwyer, MS LMFT

The Process of Therapy

Diagnosis, Screening, and Assessment

In order to plan for you to have a map to get better, we offer screening and assessment so we can understand where to start. During your first session, and then periodically during our work together, we'll go over what you're experiencing, symptoms, struggles, things other folks have noticed about you. We'll talk about risk factors or behaviors that may indicate suicidal or self-harm behavior. We'll talk about substance use. And then together we will name what is going on, so that we can define a diagnosis that will be useful to you. Your povider will explicitly explain any diagnosis they feel fits you. It's important to understand what's going on. 

Treatment Planning

We will provide recommendations for the best ways to help you get better. You get to state your goals (or we'll help you figure those out) and then we put together steps to help you get there. The combo of hard work in the office and the steps you take outside the office, along with resources and ideas will help you get to be the best you!

Care Coordination

We help connect my folks with other folks they need: gender affirming medical care, social workers, housing or food support, support looking for work or training. You're not alone; there's lots of help available.

Who We Meet With

Our providers offer individual therapy, family therapy, relational therapy (couples and poly relationships), and group therapy. While all share universal skills and a commitment to 2SLGBTQIA+ and BIPOC communities, each one has areas they focus on. Details about each provider -- who we are and what we focus on -- are on the Staff tab.
