Sliding Scale Therapy

Sometimes, life presents you with unforeseen challenges. Illness, losing a job, mounting student loan debt or the loss of affordable housing can all impact your ability to pay bills on time. That’s why Well Clinic is proud to offer the best sliding scale therapy in San Francisco … because times of acute crisis are when we need therapy the most.

At Well Clinic, we strive to offer our services people from every socio-economic background. You may prefer to work with a therapist who can offer a sliding scale rate, so that your treatment doesn’t break the bank.

Do I Qualify for Sliding Scale Therapy?

Our sliding scale is based on combined income for individuals, couples and families. Please contact us to find out whether or not you qualify for reduced rates.


Who Provides Sliding Scale Therapy?

At Well Clinic, more than a dozen professional therapists and counselors currently offer sliding scale rates.

For counseling services, you may choose a licensed clinician or one of our expert Associates and Psychological Assistants. These highly trained and compassionate practitioners have completed master’s or doctoral programs at accredited institutions, and are all closely supervised by experienced clinicians.

For psychiatric services, you may choose a psychiatric nurse practitioner who works in collaboration with a licensed medical doctor.

About our Associates and Assistants

Associates and Psychological Assistants participate in Well Clinic Psychotherapy Training Program for a period of about a year. If you are in therapy with a clinician-in-training when their training comes to an end, we will find you another clinician to continue your therapy at the Well Clinic if you wish. You may also be able to continue therapy with them at their new job setting.

If the clinician-in-training becomes licensed during your therapy with them, it is likely that their fee will increase. If you are not able to afford the new fee, we will offer you another therapist whose fee will be close to your original fee.



  • I absolutely love Well Clinic! From the beginning, my husband and I felt like we were in a comfortable and safe space.

    Our couple’s therapy bridged gaps in our relationship and helped us understand each other that much more.

  • Well Clinic is an oasis, especially for busy professionals like me.

    It’s a relaxing and safe space, nothing like the stuffy or drab offices you’d expect when going to a therapist.

  • Well Clinic’s inviting and professional design makes me feel comfortable and at ease, which probably benefits the work I am doing.

    In fact, it doesn’t really feel like a therapy clinic at all, which I find awesome.
