Oakland Fire

- Counseling -

Free and Pay What You Can

Hello,
In response to the tragic Oakland Ghostship fire, I have organized a list of psychotherapists who have agreed to provide 4 to 6 sessions of crisis stabilization counseling to help those directly impacted by the fire.   Most of the psychotherapists will provide these sessions for free while some offer a "pay what you can."

GUIDELINES

  • This is the honor system - please use this list only if you have been directly impacted by the fire.  This includes loss of a loved one (relative, friend, co-worker), survived the fire, live in close proximity to the fire.

  • Each psychotherapist has 1 to 2 available spots.

  • If you call a psychotherapist and she or he does not have any spots please try another therapist from the list.  I will do my best to keep the list updated.

  • The maximum number of free or "pay what you can" sessions available for each person is 6.  If you need additional sessions please ask your psychotherapist for guidance.
