Are you EXPERIENCING difficulty paying for therapy?


You have options

Adventures of the Heart & Mind (AHM) is committed to serving those in need of mental health services, regardless of ability to pay. AHM provides several options to reduce the financial concerns of clients while balancing the needs of our organization and staff to provide the highest level of quality service.

Though we cannot guarantee the availability of these options at all times, we will always do our best to try and work with each person’s unique situation. If we can't meet your needs directly, we would be happy to assist you in finding the right fit for you. 

Reduced Fee Sessions

Applicants who qualify can see a temporary reduction in price per session of up to $100/per session for up to 6 months. AHM's standardized sliding scale takes into consideration income and family size. If all reduced fee slots are filled, a waiting list will be available and clients will be served in order of application received. AHM has recently updated its sliding scale to be more inclusive in response to the current and anticipated impact of COVID-19.  

Pro-Bono (Free) Therapy

Our pro-bono therapy program provides short term financial assistance to eligible recipients. The program offers temporary financial relief in the form of up to 12 therapy sessions (a value of $2,100) at no cost.  This program is funded by our company internally as a public service and contribution to our loving community. 

Eligibility criteria: 

  • 18 years or older
  • Currently experiencing financial hardship
  • Physically located in California at time of sessions
  • Open to teletherapy (due to COVID-19 restrictions)
  • Not a personal friend or relative of the therapist providing services
  • Not currently involved in any legal proceedings requiring therapist participation/assessment 

Once an eligible application is submitted, it will be entered into pool of applicants. When a pro-bono slot becomes available, a lottery will occur and an applicant will be selected at random. Once selected, an AHM team member will reach out to directly to the applicant to be offered the slot. The selected applicant will not be announced publicly due to privacy concerns. The selected applicant has 72 hours to contact back and accept the slot or it may be relinquished. If for any reason the applicant is unable to utilize the slot, another drawing will occur.
