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 women. We believe that a key to healing our wounded world lies in supporting women, one population disproportionately affected by physical, sexual, and domestic 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.

As you apply for the insurance through an online exchange, you will be prompted to enter income and demographic information. The system will determine your eligibility for Medicaid and subsidies based on this information.  Learn more about your options here: http://depts.washington.edu/hhpccweb/health-resource/essential-information-for-students-about-the-affordable-care-act/
