For many of our clients, taking the first step toward seeking therapy is often the hardest step toward recovery and self-empowerment. Despite increasing awareness for and access to mental health treatment across the United States, there is still a ton of stigma and shame surrounding seeking support from a licensed professional. At The Gender & Sexuality Therapy Center, our mission is to offer a safe, non-judgmental, and empowering therapeutic space, free from stigma, shame, discrimination, and microaggressions.
At The Gender & Sexuality Therapy Center, we provide psychotherapy to individuals, couples, multiple-partner relationships, and families.

gender identity (including transgender and gender expansive individuals)
