We want counseling to be an inclusive resource that can support as much of the community as possible. We also need MEND Seattle to be a sustainable business so that we can support the community for years to come.
We offer a sliding scale to all of our clients, and we are grateful to each client who pays what they can based on their economic situation. We will never ask you for your income. We just ask you to honestly consider what you can sustainably pay within the sliding scale over the course of your time at MEND. No guilt. No shame.
Modeled after Rainier Beach Yoga, a local social justice yoga studio we love, here's how we think about fees.
Supporting $60 - Individual $75 - Couples
The Supporting Fee is MEND’s full fee. We ask all who can pay the Supporting Fee to do so.
Sustaining $50 - Individual $65 - Couples
The Sustaining Fee covers the cost of counseling and keeps our doors open.
Sponsored $40 - Individual $55 - Couples
The Sponsored Fee is the reduced fee we offer so that together, we can make counseling available to more people.
