Low-cost sliding scale counseling also available to anyone in the state of Washington facing financial challenges.
The Antioch University Seattle Community Counseling and Psychology Clinic is providing low-fee counseling and therapy services to Covid-19 front line workers in Washington State. The Antioch Clinic is a graduate training clinic for counseling, therapy, and psychology students, supervised by licensed professionals. The Clinic offers individual, couple, family, and creative arts therapy, with special attention to understanding multicultural differences.
“These uncertain times can exacerbate mental health challenges for everyone, especially those working on the frontline during the pandemic,” said Doug Wear, PhD, Clinic Director. “Our student therapists are trained in a variety of clinical psychology and counseling techniques and will consult with you to identify the best approach for your situation.”
To help all those affected by the pandemic or otherwise facing financial challenges, the Antioch Clinic is also offering a special, low fee, sliding scale, which begins at $0. The fee is based on household income.
“Although we are just one Clinic, we have a statewide reach and want to help as many people as we can,” added Wear. “We encourage anyone feeling stressed and overwhelmed to contact us.”
Frontline workers, for the purpose of this program, are the subgroup of essential workers that have been called on to meet our basic needs during the pandemic who cannot work remotely and thus typically work in person with the public. Frontline workers can include, but are not limited to, healthcare workers, protective service workers (police and EMTs), cashiers in grocery and general merchandise stores, production workers, food processing and service workers, janitors and maintenance workers, agricultural workers, and truck and delivery drivers.
For those wishing to schedule an appointment, please call the Clinic at 206-268-4840 or email [email protected].
