The ideal client in Seattle Therapy Alliance’s Women’s Therapy Project is a woman between the age of 18 and 65 who can afford to pay $30-$50 per session and attend therapy on a weekly basis. STA does not provide crisis intervention or case management services; persons in need of this level of care will be best served at another agency. STA specializes in women’s issues; thus, primary care is limited to women. However, we are happy to offer referrals for men to providers nearby, and we are pleased to provide counseling for couples and families when it is appropriate.
Seattle Therapy Alliance is an equal opportunity clinic. We embrace diversity and welcome trainees and clients irrespective of age, disability, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity, religious affiliation or immigration status.

Seattle Therapy Alliance charges between $30 and $50 per 50-minute session; your fee will be determined in your first session with your therapist, and it will be based upon whatever you can pay on a weekly basis over the course of your therapeutic process. STA does not provide a free initial consultation, nor do we provide ongoing services free of charge.
Payments are to be made at the beginning of each session in the form of PayPal deposit (with additional $2.00 processing fee for each transaction), cash or a check made out to Seattle Therapy Alliance. If you forget to bring payment to your session, you will be asked to make a payment via PayPal within 24 hours of the session. Because this is a training clinic, Seattle Therapy Alliance is unable to submit claims to insurance for your care. Additionally, customary fees will be charged in the unlikely event of an extended phone consultation between you and your therapist.
Clients that need to pay a bill, please use the form below and include $2.00 extra to cover the processing fee associated with this transaction
Seattle Therapy Alliance is pleased to offer therapy services through its Women’s Therapy Project, a program in which women will be selected to receive affordable therapy on a weekly basis. STA has a variety of daytime, evening and weekend appointments available; however your scheduling availability will be one factor in the extension of an invitation for involvement in the Project. You will be asked to provide an overview of your availability on the Patient Intake form. Due to the limited number of patient positions available, it is a privilege to be selected for this program, and it is incumbent upon you, the participant, to do everything in your power to protect the hour you are given for your appointments. If you are not able to protect the particular time that is given to you, we will not be able to guarantee you another counseling spot.
Because of the nature of the therapeutic process, sessions will take place at the same time on a weekly basis. Since this time is reserved for you, it becomes your financial responsibility. The same fee is collected for missed or cancelled appointments as for attended sessions unless we have arranged in previous sessions that you will not attend. Therapy patients who no-show twice in a row will forego their invitation to participate in this program. In the rare case of emergencies (i.e., health or weather-related cancellations), you will not be charged for the session.
Seattle Therapy Alliance is a training clinic; all therapy services are provided by qualified counseling interns and externs who are participating in this program for the period of one year. If you are interested in continuing your treatment with your therapist at the end of her commitment, you may discuss this with her as she may make services available to you in her own private practice at that time. The fee for service will be renegotiated between yourself and your therapist in this eventuality. If you would prefer to continue to receive services at STA, we will gladly give you a spot with another therapist.
