About The Founder
Specializing in trauma, Jennifer Silacci has been in private practice for 15 years, both in NYC, and presently, in Boulder, Colorado. Having personally experienced being in NYC during 9/11, she recognized the need to create a resource to help Coronavirus (COVID-19) health care professionals, first responders, service industry employees, and others on the front line, access immediate, free and reduced-fee online support.
After reaching out to colleagues across the country, she gathered a large group of licensed, insured therapists who generously agreed to donate sessions or reduce their fees to help.
Shortly after, the vision to expand, and help those impacted by national crises and disasters emerged, and Therapy Aid was born.
