"With the barriers affecting access to treatment by members of diverse ethnic and racial groups. Loveland Therapy Fund provides financial assistance to Black women and girls nationally seeking therapy. Loveland Therapy Fund recipients will have access to a comprehensive list of mental health professionals across the country providing high quality, culturally competent services to Black women and girls. Black women and girls deserve access to healing, and that healing will impact generations." - Rachel Cargle, Founder of Loveland Therapy Fund


One of my areas of passions is helping women thrive. All women. Being a white woman and psychologist, my goal is to be part of the change this country needs to see. To be part of the solution versus a supportive bystander. When I came across Rachel Cargle's foundation, Loveland Therapy Fund, I felt so drawn to help. This aligned with my passions, values, and beliefs. With that being said, I am calling you to join me. To join together as women to help lift and support one another. Women supporting women. The reason I feel passionate about supporting Loveland Therapy Fund, is because it works tirelessly to break down the barriers for Black females to access mental health services. Black women and girls deserve to feel heard, seen, supported, and validated. They deserve to heal. 


So, will you join me? Even if you are only able to offer $5, every single penny helps. 


Thank you so very much

Thank you so much for your interest in supporting the Loveland Foundation Therapy Fund. Whether you have already donated or you are just learning about the project, we are grateful to have you on board.


 With therapy sessions in the U.S. typically costing anywhere from $60 - $250-- even with insurance, the prevalent and ingrained stigma surrounding mental health in many communities, and the fact that the vast majority of therapists in this country are white, it is often difficult for Black women and girls to access therapy when they need it. We wanted to change that. 


In our pilot program, we raised over $250,000 with the support of our generous community and provided financial assistance to hundreds of Black women and girls to go to therapy. We did this through collaborative partnerships with  Therapy for Black Girls, Open Path Collective, National Queer and Trans Therapists of Color Network, and Talkspace, networks and service providers that are all committed to making therapy more affordable and accessible. 


No matter how much you are able to give, we are excited to work together with our community again to bring therapy support directly to Black women and girls who need it. Please donate now to tangibly tell these women and girls, “We see you, we hear you, and we are invested in your healing.”Generations will benefit from their healing.
