Let me give a better overview of SCS:
They have Master's student Interns working there (second or third year - depending on the program - students) that you can see at a much lower cost depending on your income / insurance capabilities. The lowest they go is $20. Then there are staff members whom you can see more frequently than an intern and who have more experience, but aren't necessarily BETTER (I just had a fantastic experience with an intern at SCS, but sadly, the problem with interns is that they leave after a year after they graduate. 🙁 ) Staff members at the lowest tier payment is $60 but I'm willing to bet there's some wiggle room there. They also frequently have studies you can participate in if you're interested, many groups, MANY MANY groups on a wide variety of subjects be it trans affairs, smoking cessation, getting off meth, people who are HIV+ etc. Most/all groups are free (I am not a member of any but to my knowledge they are free - outside therapists also come in to lead groups sometimes).

I've been going to them since I was 17, and am now 25. I've always seen interns with varying degrees of success. My last one was such a perfect match for me that we keep in contact (very rarely, and with professional courtesy) via email so I can stay up-to-date with where she's applying for jobs and potentially see if I can get an outpatient sneak-in as she's applying for jobs at outpatient and partial hospitalization eating disorder programs (one of my primary concerns).

SCS is a wonderful refuge for the LGBT, especially as many of us have a hard time finding work (perhaps due to homelessness, being 'different,' our HIV+ status or AIDS making it impossible to work, etc. There are a wide variety of reasons why the LGBT population is so marginalized and often overlooked. But SCS is always there and has been for decades. And so it will be for a long time, I hope.
