Welcome to Seattle Therapy Alliance, a counseling organization established to provide affordable counseling for women-identified folks on their journeys toward healing.

Research shows that weekly counseling can lead to increased happiness, productive coping mechanisms, fulfilling relationships and even intergenerational health. Even if the events of your life don’t change, your perspective on them can, as well as your coping skills, so that together with your counselor you can make your way to a more peaceful and meaningful life.

At Seattle Therapy Alliance, we offer more than counseling. We offer resolution with your loved ones, emotional health for you and your children, satisfaction in your career, happiness and meaning in your life…and perhaps most importantly, relationship, a haven from loneliness.

About Seattle Therapy Alliance
Located in the Lower Queen Anne neighborhood of Seattle, STA was opened in 2009 with the two-fold vision of training graduate counseling students in psychotherapy and women’s issues while simultaneously making low-cost therapy available to women.

We believe that a key to healing our wounded world lies in supporting women, one population disproportionately affected by physical, sexual, and domestic abuse, economic instability, and the weight of single parenting. Think about it: 70% of the persons who live in poverty in the United States are women and children. And, while women represent 50 percent of the world population, they perform nearly two-thirds of all the working hours, receive only one-tenth of the world income and own less than 1 percent of world property.

There are very few places where women will get a break. This is one way we can help.

Why else would I come to Seattle Therapy Alliance?                                      

We have no limit on the number of sessions you can receive as a client at STA. Our commitment is to you and your healing. While many organizations have limited resources and will thus cap your benefits at a certain number of sessions, we want to see you stay with your counselor for as long as you are in need. That’s why we don’t sign non-compete clauses with our practitioners; we encourage them to continue their work with you wherever they establish their mental health practice after their in/externship at Seattle Therapy Alliance.

We are also proud of the clinical support our staff offers our clinicians to ensure we give you the most helpful care we can. In addition to weekly individual supervision, the counselors at Seattle Therapy Alliance receive weekly group trainings in issues related to mental health and wellbeing from an anti-oppression lens.
