LGBTQIA+ Services - Counseling & Therapy Services - The Juniper Center

Support to Accept Your Authentic Self

Therapy for LGBTQIA+ people is designed to provide both individuals and their loved ones with the solutions and tools they need to thrive. We take great pride in cultivating an environment that is non-judgmental, supportive, and compassionate – where LGBTQIA+ people can speak freely about the challenges and triumphs taking place in their lives. The Juniper Center for Gender and Sexuality was developed to provide informed, affirming therapy for LGBTQ individuals, partners, and families.

At The Juniper Center for Gender and Sexuality, we are a diverse team of mental health professionals who welcome all parts of your identity. We want you to feel understood, accepted, and safe to explore your authentic self. Whether you prefer to meet with a therapist who is a member of the LGBTQIA+ community, or a therapist who is LGBTQIA+ affirming, we can help.

What matters to you, matters to us.

Whether or not your struggles are related to your sexuality or gender, our team of mental health professionals is here to assist you with whatever challenges you may be facing.
