Reduced fee for BIPOC + QPOC in California
Purpose Therapy Oakland is Anti-Racist and pro-Black/African American. As an ally and friend to the Black/African-American community, therapy becomes an essential healing tool to help non-Black people unlearn harmful prejudices and learn to activate their privilege to support the black community by becoming explicitly anti-racist.
Therapy is also a place for people of color, specifically Black/African-American people, to heal from systemic and ancestral trauma. Black lives MATTER. This means ALL black lives, including queer black lives and trans black lives.
In order to lower the barrier to therapy services for BIPOC and QPOC in California, a separate reduced fee schedule for therapy has been established.
