Open Path Psychotherapy Collective and Serving the Underserved with Paul Fugelsang & Caitlin Erwin – Episode 161

People are interested, motivated, and earnest in wanting to get help and begin therapy that is going to benefit their lives, but sometimes access to therapy or financial barriers can make that very, very hard. In this episode, Dr. Graham Taylor speaks with Paul Fugelsang and Caitlin Erwin. Both Paul and Caitlin join us from Open Path Psychotherapy Collective, a national nonprofit providing affordable psychotherapy to uninsured or underinsured individuals, couples, families, and children. Paul is the Founder and Executive Director of Open Path. Paul is a Licensed Professional Counselor with 26 years of experience working in the mental health field. Caitlin is the Program Manager at Open Path. She has a MA in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Lenoir Rhyne University. In her 6 years of experience with Open Path, Caitlin has helped break down barriers to access to mental health support. Together they discuss the Open Path platform, the ways clients can access therapists in a variety of specialties, the qualifying process as a therapist to become part of the collective, the free incentives available to therapists who work with Open Path, and finally, they discuss a new program focused on the healing arts called the Open Path Healing Arts Collective. Open Path Psychotherapy Collective is providing people with important mental health services, but with sensitivity to the financial and economic piece of access to care.
