Low Cost or Sliding Scale Therapy
Palo Santo is one of the only private clinics in Tucson that offers low-cost, sliding scale therapy. This is often provided by advanced master’s and doctoral students. We also have post doctoral fellows, who are also offering a sliding fee scale. If you don’t have insurance or can’t find a therapist through your insurance, please contact us at (520) 539-6455.
A therapist will work with you individually to understand your concerns and assist you in problem resolution or symptom management. Therapeutic modalities will include Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Behavioral Therapy, Mindfulness, and Strategic and Family Therapy, among others. Our nine therapists have a wide range of skills and specialties.
A therapist will work with you and your partner to understand the issues causing difficulty in your partnership. This active process will assist you in finding the problematic patterns in your relationship and find effective solutions. There may be times during the course of couples therapy that the therapist will request to meet with each of you individually.
Similar to couples therapy, family therapy is a process that will uncover the problematic patterns within the family. The therapist will work with you together or with specific family members.
Group therapy is a therapeutic modality that allows group members to work together in the understanding and assimilation of new healthy behaviors. Palo Santo will offer a variety of groups throughout the year. Groups may last from 4 weeks to 8 weeks depending on the subject matter and group process. Groups will be located under ‘Special Offerings’.
Substance Abuse Groups will focus on 1) Parents with children/adult children suffering with substance abuse and addiction 2) Education about the opioid crisis and opiate abuse/addiction, 3) Grieving the loss of a loved one due to addiction/overdose.
Parenting is a therapeutic modality for individuals or couples to increase the effectiveness of the ‘tools in their parenting toolbox’. This process teaches the science behind behavior management and works with each individual or couple to resolve specific problems with their child. The therapist will work with the client(s) to determine appropriate behavioral programs, reinforcers and/or consequences for each specific child. Please contact Michelle Ellis, Ph.D.
Acupuncture – Gloria’s Acupuncture and Wellness is just across the parking lot!

Reiki is a healing technique based on the principle that the therapist can channel energy into the patient by means of touch, to activate the natural healing processes of the patient’s body and restore physical and emotional well-being.
Biofeedback is a training technique that allows people to become aware of, and to regulate their personal health using signals from their bodies. Body signals measured during the biofeedback process at Palo Santo include heart rate variability and respiration. With practice people can use this training to better control their mind-body responses and, in turn, lead healthier lives. Research shows that biofeedback helps people increase their coping skills, decreases stress and anxiety and improves immune function.
HeartMath® is a well-tested and widely used system that trains individuals to reduce stress by focusing on their breathing and evoking heart-felt emotions. This practice promotes the development of a wave-like heart rhythm pattern that synchronizes with breathing, called ‘coherence.’ Achieving high coherence is very beneficial because it means the heart can rapidly adapt to changing physical and psychological needs resulting in focused clarity, improved emotional balance and sustained peak performance. Dr. Baldwin is a Certified HeartMath Trainer, a HeartMath Coach and has completed the HeartMath Interventions Program which qualifies her to work in clinical settings.
Zero Balancing is a body-mind therapy that uses skilled touch to increase wellness by balancing the relationship between the body’s energy and structure.
