Our Community Counseling Center Staff

We are accepting clinical placements for 1st and 2nd year MSW students and CMHC students for the 2020/2021 academic year.  BSW students can apply for a spring, summer or fall semester(s) 2020 placement. Read More

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.

For more information or to apply, please contact Joshua Bravo (contact information below).
