Pride Counseling is an online counseling platform and app intended for adult users who identify as a member of the LGBTQIA+ community. After completing an initial questionnaire/self-assessment, users are matched with a licensed therapist that best fit their needs. Pride Counseling has over a thousand licensed therapists available, all having a Masters Degree or Doctorate Degree in their field, and who specialize in issues the LBGTQIA+ community faces. The therapists are available to users on a weekly basis through messaging, scheduled phones, and video or live chat. Users can choose to remain anonymous by choosing a nickname. The cost of counseling ranges from $80-$100 per week, billed monthly. Pride Counseling also offers financial aid based on need through a separate financial form and membership can be canceled at any time. Services are generally not covered through health insurance, Medicare, or Medicaid.
