Therapy Referrals
After learning more about me and visiting the FAQs page you've decided I'm not the right fit, that is totally ok! I want you to work with someone who is aligned with you and can support you in your journey. Unfortunately I cannot provide individual consultation to help you find the right therapist for you, so please consider the follow directories and resources for where to look next:

OpenPathCollective.Org  (low cost therapy providers are listed here)
TherapyDen.com
WeGlimmer.com (LGBTQIA+ affirming therapists and other wellness practioners)
InclusiveTherapists.com (culturally responsive, social justice-oriented therapists)
GoodTherapy.org
*If you plan to use insurance to pay for sessions, please consider contacting your insurance provider directly and asking for a list of "in-network therapists" or asking if they provide reimbursement for services from an "out of network" provider.
