Can I see my own therapist?
Yes. If you would like to see a therapist not listed, please contact us here and let us know. We will contact your therapist to set up billing arrangements.
Why only two offices?
These two offices have simply pre-arranged a billing system with the BIA Therapy Fund. Seeing a therapist at one of these offices will expedite the process. If you would like to see a therapist not listed, please contact us here and let us know.
Are all of these therapists specially trained in regard to racial trauma?
Some are, some are not. As with any patient-doctor relationship, you must do your own research and decide who you would like to see.
Is my information safe?
Yes. The BIA Therapy Fund receives invoices with a patient number only. We do not have access to any of your personal information or data.
Why are only five sessions covered?
We consulted with therapists and the consensus was that four to six sessions would be a good amount to make some progress. Five sessions also makes sense for the BIA Therapy Fund from a financial stand point; it allows us to help more people.
