Kip is not your typical mental health clinic. We work tirelessly to do away with the stereotypes surrounding therapy that often hinder people from seeking help in the first place. We value a quick turnaround so that your first session may be as soon as within a few days – instead of waiting months when you feel bad now. We ensure that our clinicians have manageable caseloads so that they can focus on your needs, and our team meets weekly to evaluate progress with all of our clients.

Founded in 2013, Kip’s mission is guided by three main principles:

  • Provide affordable yet high quality psychotherapy services to the community

  • Provide training, education, and supervision for emerging psychotherapists

  • Make important contributions to the psychotherapy field by generating new knowledge about the psychotherapeutic process and its effectiveness

The core of Kip’s philosophy – the value of the therapeutic relationship in achieving clinical success – is reflected in our mission to describe, measure, and evaluate the therapeutic relationship in our practice, training, and research.

Our clinical training program – which includes internships for graduate students, post-graduate fellowships, and full-time licensure qualifying experience – was developed specifically in response to graduate students’ demand for solid training and practical experience in becoming a skilled clinician. Kip is able to provide services in part because our talented, emerging practitioners dedicate themselves to work tirelessly towards the development of knowledge, skills, and experience to become successful psychotherapists.

We hope that your experience with us helps to reduce the stigma associated with conversations about mental health and starts you on a path towards a richer and fuller life.

Q What kind of clients do you work with?

We work with a wide variety of clients. Many of our clients are struggling with anxiety, depression, addictive behaviors, substance abuse, identity issues, body image issues/disordered eating, and career and life transitions. We work hard to serve clients who have felt misunderstood by other psychotherapists - including queer clients, people of color, and people who identify as transgender. You can learn more about the individual, couples, and group counseling we provide on our website.

Q How do I start working with one of your therapists?

You can select a therapist you want to work with at a day and time you can meet on our website. You will be asked to answer a brief questionnaire which will help your therapist understand some important things about you before you meet in person. You should expect your therapist to reach out to you prior to your appointment to confirm your session (location, time, check-in procedures) and answer any questions you have in advance.

Q What happens during the first session?

During the first session, your therapist will focus on developing a relationship with and understanding of you. This may include a more detailed understanding of what is bringing you to therapy, the history of what you might be struggling with, and what your goals are for treatment. Your therapist will also review Kip’s policies and procedures and what you can expect from treatment.

Q How long is each session?

Each session is 45 minutes long, and we ask that our clients come at least once a week.

Q How much do you charge?

Our fees vary by the clinician’s level of experience:

Tier IV (Senior Clinician) $195-225
Tier III (Advanced Practitioner) $170
Tier II (Fellow) -$150 per session
Tier I (Graduate Intern) - $95per session
Couples- $200 Tiers1-III, $250 Tier IV
Adolescent Therapy- $200 Tiers1-III, $250 Tier IV

Q How do I pay for my sessions?

After your first session, we will ask for your credit card information which is safely stored with our credit card processor. We will charge the card on file at the time of your session. We do not accept cash or checks.

Q Do you take my insurance?

We are NOT an in-network provider for any insurance plans. However, you may be eligible for reimbursement for services if you have out-of-network benefits that cover mental/behavioral health services. Read about our fees & policies to learn more.

Q What if I don’t want to work with the therapist I started with?

We suggest working with one of our therapists for 3-6 sessions to get a feel for their personality and style. If you would like to switch therapists, you can reach out to your therapist or our operations manager. We will work with you to match you with someone that better fits your needs.

Q Where is Kip located?

The Kip office is currently closed due to the ongoing pandemic. All therapy sessions and groups are currently remote.

Q What are Kip’s hours?

We are open Monday-Saturday to accommodate the busy needs and schedules of our clients. We have clinicians at Kip from 7 am-10 pm on Monday-Friday, and 9 am-5 pm on Saturdays.
