About Therapy Aid Coalition

In mid-March, 2020, Therapy Aid Coalition launched its first initiative, Coronavirus Online Therapy.   The website held the intention of connecting essential workers with free and low-cost online therapy during the COVID-19 pandemic.  To date, we have thousands of participating therapists within all 50 US States, and have recently expanded to serve not only essential workers during COVID, but also victims of national disasters and crises within the US - presently the California and Colorado wildfires.

Mission Statement:

Therapy Aid Coalition's mission is to develop a national network of psychotherapists, capable of responding to crises that occur within the United States. By offering support, training and compensation to our psychotherapists, we are able to ensure those impacted by national crises receive prompt quality care and support.  By providing training opportunities and a community of support to our network of psychotherapists, we reduce the risk of burnout and vicarious traumatization.

Our Values:

  • Therapy should be accessible and free to those impacted by national crises

  • Therapists should be valued, supported and compensated for their expertise

  • Therapists willing to assist in crises should be given training opportunities and support

Our Goals:

  • To serve essential workers, and victims of national disasters and crises within the USA

  • To generate a scholarship fund, to cover costs of therapy for those in need

  • To expand our network of therapists, nationwide

  • To create free training and continuing education opportunities to support our therapists, prevent burnout and assist in reducing the likelihood of vicarious traumatization

  • To develop partnerships with agencies (both public and private), in order to promptly  deploy assistance during crises
