Mental Health

To begin care, please call reception to make an appointment for an intake with one of our therapists. We will gather basic information intended to help us determine how we can best help you and discuss our fee schedule.  Please note that our providers are currently working to becoming contracted with various insurance providers. In the interim, our mental health services are available on a cash pay basis between $75 and $150 per visit, depending on the type of visit.  We also provide a sliding fee scale for people under 200% of the Federal Poverty Level.  Please visit our Sliding Scale Discount page for additional information. Payment is required at the time of service, and all appointments are 45 minutes long.

Our Mental Health Services

Our mental health providers offer culturally-affirming therapy designed to bring meaningful and lasting improvement to the lives of all people in our community.  Our licensed providers are highly qualified and experienced in working with LGBTQ+ people, which means we take special consideration for the unique circumstances and challenges of sexual, gender, and romantic minority (SGRM) communities.

Our Providers Approach To Therapy

Danielle Walsh 

Danielle approaches therapy from a humanistic, person-centered lens. She believes in the innate goodness and wisdom of her clients, and strives to honor this by listening attentively, holding clients with unconditional positive regard, and providing empathic reflection. A commitment to work for social justice drives Danielle’s life, both in and out of the therapy office. She strives to be genuine and to live in congruence with her values, knowing that this allows her to bring her best self to her work with her clients. Danielle is able to use elements drawn from many different theoretical approaches (including cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical-behavioral therapy, and emotionally-focused therapy) in order to help clients meet their treatment goals.

Michael Duncan 

Mike’s approach to therapy is trauma-informed, primarily Humanistic-Existential, and incorporates aspects of Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Dialectical-Behavioral Therapy (DBT).  This means he approaches therapy with the belief that each person is doing their best to meet their needs, and that the most important part of therapy is developing trust and attending to patterns that arise in the relationship.  He focuses on a client’s subjective experience and increasing self-awareness to facilitate their ability to bring about acceptance and change, while emphasizing the importance of authenticity, insight, and meaning-making.

He works to cultivate and nurture humility toward and respect for people across the sexual, gender, and relationship minority (SGRM) spectrums.  He does this by acknowledging the realities of transphobia, homophobia, and heterosexism while approaching therapy with a sex-affirmative, kink-aware, and poly-friendly attitude.  It is important for him to acknowledge and work through his areas of privilege and bias and not make normative assumptions, as well as be out and affirmative about his own queer identities and experiences.
