About

What services/specialties does your practice offer?

Our practice centers and celebrates BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, People of Color), queer communities, and other marginalized groups. We value client's identity, cultural practices and personal beliefs.

As members of these communities, what therapists at Fig Tree offer clients comes not just from what we’ve learned, but also profoundly from who we are.

Why should I choose your practice?

We believe it is important for clients to find a clinician who shares their identity (ethnic, racial, cultural, sexual…), Because we are members of the community we serve and we experience oppression on a personal level, we are confident in our ability to provide a space where differences are honored.

We understand the complicity of navigating intersectionality (eg being a POC and queer-identified) in systems of domination like white supremacy, colonialism, and racialized capitalism.

How does payment work at your practice?

Fig Tree Counseling is in-network with Aetna and Blue Cross Blue Shield PPO insurance plans. For clients not using insurance, individual sessions are $200, and a sliding scale of $150-$200 is offered for those with financial concerns. The providers at Fig Tree Counseling can also provide you with paperwork for your insurance company if you are seeking out-of-network reimbursement.
