As a Social Justice Psychotherapists, Todd and Aleksandra advocate for mental health care access. The hope is that mental health care is included in the universal healthcare system and guided by the consumer. Until then, we do offer a limited number of grants to support clients in financial hardship that do not have access to union/association assistance. You may inquire about availability and more details regarding these offers. 

The grant offered is 8 sessions for 6000 kr. per session. You do not need to use all the sessions. The grant expires 4 months after the grant in offered if all sessions have not been used. If all available grants are being use, you may be put you on the waitlist. 


Samtökin 78 offers grants to those who identify in the LGBT+, BDSM, Poly, and all of the Gender and Sexual Diversities communities. The grant is also offered to family and friends who need a space to talk about LGBT+ topics or navigate their relationship with someone in the LGBT+ community. 


The grant offered is 3 sessions of therapy for free. Therapy may be individual, couples and relationships, or family sessions. At the completion of the 3 sessions, it is up to you and the therapist to reach an agreement about payment if you wish to continue therapy. As a part of Samtökin 78 grant, there might be a form that needs to be completed before each session. Though there is an awareness of privacy and safety, this survey and questionnaire is NOT entirely anonymous

If you are using the S78 grant, you need to call or email Samtökin 78 to set an appointment. Just ask to be set up with an appointment with Todd. Aleksandra does not work for Samtökin 78 at this time.
