Behavioral Health

Behavioral health is an important part of your overall wellness. With special skills in gender, sexuality, and HIV, you can look to us for a range of professional and peer-based services. Whether it’s talking about depression or anxiety, making changes to substance use, managing your psychiatric medication, exploring identity, or navigating life changes, our diverse programming and professional staff of therapists and peer counselors offer affirming care.

Behavioral Health programs include peer support, substance use treatment, psychotherapy, psychiatry, and gender affirming assessment. We offer services to adults and youth. The behavioral healthcare team includes licensed psychotherapists (social workers, professional counselors, and marriage and family therapists, psychologists), psychiatric providers (medical doctors and nurse practitioners), and highly trained peers and graduate interns. The assessment and referral process will get you started and will help us determine together which services are right for you.
