The Family Clinic for Queer and Trans Youth

Has a teen in your life recently told you they are gay, lesbian, bisexual, queer or transgender?

Our Mission

The Family Clinic for Queer and Trans Youth works to provide financially accessible, culturally-attuned therapeutic care that helps foster and support safe, loving, and affirming families of queer and trans youth.

Our Purpose

The group therapy process aims to:

  1. Improve caregiver understanding of queer and trans identities,
  2. Improve relationships between caregivers and queer and trans youth, and, ultimately,
  3. Increase well-being and health for queer and trans youth and their families.

What We Offer

  • Family group therapy for queer and trans youth (aged 13 to 21) and their caregivers.
  • Individual and family therapy for queer and trans youth, adults, and their families (no age limits).
  • Workshops for healthcare providers on effective and inclusive practice with LGBTQ youth and their families.

What It Costs

$10 per session for each family.
