We know how difficult it can be to find a therapist who understands us and truly sees us with no judgment. Our therapists are all part of the LGBTQIA+ community themselves and provide expert, affirming care.

Most folks with in-network insurance will pay just their copay (usually around $15-50) for therapy sessions (this will depend on your individual plan and whether or not you’ve met your deductible). Otherwise, sessions are $129/visit when paying out-of-pocket.

We currently offer talk therapy in California, Colorado, and Florida (with more states to come). Not in one of those states? We’re expanding to other states as soon as we can. Let us know your interest by filling out this short form.

Popular Questions

Where is FOLX therapy available?

We currently offer individual therapy in California, Colorado, and Florida. We’ll be expanding across the US soon, so sign up for our newsletter and be the first to know when we launch in your state!

For FOLX members outside of those states looking for therapy, we can help you find an inclusive mental health provider via our referral network. Please submit a request and one of our Member Navigators will be happy to work with you.

What other mental health support does FOLX provide?

As part of a FOLX membership, you have access to FOLX clinicians who can provide treatment for anxiety, depression, and insomnia. You also get an entire community of support through our FOLX Community Platform which includes support groups, live chat, resources, guides, and more, along with support from your member navigation team who can answer any questions you have and get you any referrals you need.

Can I use insurance for therapy?

Yes! If you have in-network insurance with us, you can use your insurance to help cover the cost of therapy.

We can also provide a superbill for you. A superbill is a document that provides an itemized list of the services you received from FOLX, along with the fees you have paid for those services. A superbill can be submitted to your insurance provider, FSA, or HSA for reimbursement if you have out-of-network coverage. This can help you get reimbursed for some or all of your out-of-pocket payment.
