At Violet, our mission is to ensure that all underserved communities are able to access the culturally competent healthcare that we deserve. We're starting by helping our community, the LGBTQ+ community.
Why our approach works
We’re with you throughout your healthcare journey ensuring you can access queer competent therapists at affordable rates. Violet supports you through the entire process of finding, scheduling, paying for, and going to therapy.
As a team of queer folx, we understand that our community is diverse and we deserve much more than a single 'LGBTQ' drop-down value to encapsulate our expansive range of identities and experiences. We ensure that the providers we work with have the education and experience to understand and speak to this diversity.

What our community is saying.
I love Violet and honestly have told all of my queer friends about it.
Love the therapist I found, and the service for anything administrative is really high-touch and lightning-fast
The pricing transparency made it easy to budget properly.
Very streamlined service, made it easy to find a good therapist and book a recurring schedule.
Starting therapy is simple.
Tell us a bit about yourself and we'll recommend a few queer-competent therapists.
Book your initial, free 15-minute video introduction. We recommend speaking to a few therapists to find the right fit. Spend this time getting to know the therapist and letting them get to know you before making a decision.
Plan, build, and grow together. We offer virtual and in-person bookings on our platform. We encourage everyone to book a weekly session, because life gets busy and it’s important to keep mental health a priority.
If your introduction call confirms that the provider isn't the best match, work with us to find the best match.
Like many journeys in life, being with the right team is the most important part of the journey. There’s no shame in ‘shopping’ for the best mental health provider for you — in fact, we encourage it.Find a therapist

Frequently asked questions
What is queer-competent care?
Our queer-competent provides possess four key characteristics:
- Our providers possess extensive experience working with the LGBTQIA+ population, or have made it their clinical specialty.
- Our providers have an unconditional, positive regard and support for their patients’ gender identities and sexual orientations.
- Our providers address both difficulties and joys that our community experiences, addressing both barriers to treatment as well as areas in which clients are thriving.
- Our providers incorporate building LGBTQIA+ community support systems, as well as positive identity-related activities and growth as part of treatment.
Do you accept insurance?
If your insurance company covers out-of-network care, you may be reimbursed up to 90% of your mental healthcare costs. Please see this page for more information on insurance reimbursement.
We're considered an out-of-network provider with insurance companies. Why? Insurance companies heavily negotiate rates with each provider in their network, and Violet's queer-competent providers are specialized in serving the queer-community and generally do not participate in insurance networks.
What if I can't afford therapy?
We're building Violet to support our community—the queer community. If you're unable to afford our rates, please reach out to us and we'll find you an affordable provider. We want everyone to be able to access affordable mental healthcare.
Can I pay with an HSA or FSA?
Yes! All of our services are provided by clinicians and can be paid for using a Health Savings Account (HSA) or a Flexible Spending Account (FSA).
Will you find me a unique therapist?
Yes! Being queer ourselves, we know how important it is to find the perfect therapist for our needs. We'll sift through our network of providers and their networks to find the best therapist for you. Send us an email with your request for your specific needs.
Are sessions online or in-person?
Violet provides virtual appointments to allow you maximum flexibility and continuity of care.
