Welcome to Seattle Therapy Alliance, a counseling organization established to provide affordable counseling for women in their journey into self-actualization. If you’re visiting this page, chances are you are looking for relief from pain, compassionate support, lasting change and a solid hope that things can be different. We’re confident we can help.
Research shows that counseling can lead to increased happiness, productive coping mechanisms, fulfilling relationships and even intergenerational health. So, even if the events of your life don’t change, your perspective on them will, 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. All for the cost of a typical co-pay.
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 adolescent girls and women.
We believe that a key to healing our wounded world lies in supporting women, the population disproportionately affected by physical and sexual 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.
STA is the brainstorm of two longtime counselors who wanted to help more women than they could assist personally in their own private practices. Together Julie Cake, M.A., LMHC and Susan Hall, D.Min., LMHC dreamed of a business in which they could combine their talents for teaching (Julie) and entrepreneurial skills (Susan) on behalf of women. The result was a unique social business in which aspiring female therapists would be provided an “incubator” in which to grow as practitioners and as businesswomen in exchange for their work with women clients who are in search of interpersonal transformation. In this way, up to 100 women at a time are enabled to receive quality weekly counseling services at below customary rates at the same time that women practitioners are growing as counselors and as entrepreneurs. Mission accomplished!
