Our Community Counseling Center Staff
We provide training throughout their placement on LGBTQIA+ issues and services. There are multiple opportunities to work with youth, adults, and our elderly population. We treat individuals, couples, families and we focus on affirming the individual’s gender and sexual orientation. Part of our services are working with individuals who identify as transgender and Gender Non-Confirming (GNC); therefore, a lot of our trauma-informed care approach and conversations are on gender-affirming medical and surgical care, gender-affirming behavioral healthcare, and gender-affirming. In terms of what that involves, there are several components, which include social affirmation, legal affirmation, psychological affirmation, medical and surgical affirmation.
Preferable bilingual and a good understanding of LGBTQIA+ services/trauma-informed care.
