In light of the uncertainty caused by COVID-19, Viva has created several low-cost/free options to make support affordable for those who need it most.
Financial Hardship Package
New or current clients who are limited financially but interested in custom-tailored psychotherapy are encouraged to ask about this option. In this package, clients are guaranteed 3 months of individualized psychotherapy at a sliding-scale rate. After 3 months, clients can continue treatment, though rates may change. Please note that spots in this program are limited.
To request a Financial Hardship Package, please email firstname.lastname@example.org, using the title: Financial Hardship Package Request. Please include your name, phone number, and your times of availability.
Those seeking temporary, affordable support are a great fit for our Healing Through Connection (HTC) program. HTC offers up to 6 supportive sessions at a fraction of the cost of a typical, custom-tailored psychotherapy session. During this program, you will be matched with one of our therapists who offer HTC. HTC differs from individualized psychotherapy in that it focuses on empowering the client to learn skills to shift mood, change symptoms, and self-soothe. Spots in this program are limited.
To request Healing Through Connection counseling, please visit our scheduling service and select either Sarah Holland or Logan Brantley. Then, click the option to register for “Initial Appointment – Supportive Crisis Counseling LGSW.”
We have started a weekly online gathering every Friday at noon for those looking to connect with others and gain resources. This gathering is facilitated by Viva’s founder and trauma expert Dr. Julie Lopez, LICSW.
Past gatherings will be posted to Viva’s Youtube account, so stay tuned for updates!
