  • TIRP senior student / graduate therapists are bound by explicit, established principles of ethical professional practice
  • TIRP senior student / graduate therapists participate in voluntary supervision as part of ongoing responsible professional practice
  • Your therapist will protect your name and all identifying information, respecting your right to confidentiality
  • Your senior student / graduate therapist will offer an initial $40 session, followed by a negotiated sliding scale fee between $40 and $80                                                                                                                                                                                             

The following TIRP senior students and graduates offer therapy for a fee of between $40  and $80 per session. 


You may contact these therapists directly with a brief phone or email message.  They reserve a certain number of spaces in their schedules for individuals who can't afford full-fee therapy.  Please indicate that you found the therapist's name of this site and that you are looking for low-cost individual therapy with a TIRP senior student/graduate for a sliding scale fee.  If you phone and leave a message, please speak your name and contact information twice, clearly. The therapist will return your call or email, respecting your privacy in any way you request.
