Center for Creative Growth
Sliding Scale/Low Fee Clinic

Important Announcement Regarding Our
Sliding-Scale/Low Fee Clinic

Our sliding-scale, low-fee clinic is currently full. However, our licensed staff do have openings for individual, couples, family, and group therapy services.

Fees for our licensed staff typically range from $175 to $150, with some ability to provide sliding fees to $100. Our ongoing therapy groups are all led by our licensed therapists. Group therapy fees are $50 per weekly session with some availability for sliding-scale fees. We may be able to utilize your health insurance to help reduce your out-of-pocket costs when seeing one of our licensed staff for private sessions or for group therapy.

If our fees for our licensed staff are affordable for you, or if you have health insurance that might cover therapy services like ours, please contact us at 510-527-2100 or via e-mail ( to learn more about our therapy services and what might fit best for you.
