MindPath Gender and Sexual Diversity Center

Are you, or a loved one, looking for affirming, competent mental health care?

We are here for you. MindPath Care Centers’ Gender and Sexual Diversity Center is committed to supporting you.

The Gender and Sexual Diversity Center provides affirming, affordable mental healthcare resources for LGBTQ+ members of our community. It is our absolute priority to provide specialized care for a range of communities, especially those that have been traditionally marginalized.

We are queer and genderqueer savvy and understand that there are as many genders as there are people. And as such, each person who is exploring their needs with respect to their gender will be supported however they identify.

Gender & Sexual Diversity Center Services

Gender Treatment Philosophy

Collectively, we may experience reminders that our needs are unimportant or are perceived as direct threats to others’ privilege. At the Gender & Sexual Diversity Center, we honor each person’s individual needs, adaptive strategies, resilience, and desires towards finding internal equanimity during disorienting times. Our commitments to you encompass our approach to your needs with true care, concern, consistency, and competency.

If you or a loved one struggle with emotional, behavioral, psychological, or relationship difficulties, the expert staff at MindPath Care Centers’ Gender and Sexual Diversity Center are ready to help. Get your questions answered and schedule your first appointment by calling our office or contacting us through our website today.

Gender & Sexual Diversity Program

The LGBTQ+ community needs more support—we see that, and we see you. That’s why we developed the Gender and Sexual Diversity Program (GSDP), which aims to support the LGBTQ+ community by addressing the current lack of inclusive services for trans and gender diverse clients. The GSDP offers trainings for providers on best-practice care, hosts a working list of affirming resources, and connects patients with affirming providers and services.

All providers with this badge are Gender & Sexual Diversity Certified.

What our Patients Say

I would recommend Louise to anyone I know. I’ve seen her for a few years now and she’s helped me through so much. She’s very respectful and SO easy to talk to – I never feel like I’m being judged. The office is very comfortable and the staff are great!

COVID-19 & FLU PRECAUTIONS

If you have suspected coronavirus symptoms such as fever, cough, or shortness of breath, please contact your primary care provider for recommended next steps. We are following CDC recommendations to wear face coverings. Please wear a cloth mask, if you have one, to the office. Be aware that your provider may also be wearing a mask for protection. If you have a scheduled in-office appointment at MindPath, but cannot attend in person either because you have symptoms or because you do not want to be in public, please call your MindPath office to switch your appointment to a telehealth visit where you can connect with your provider from your home.

New patients who are interested in telehealth or in-office appointments can call us at 877-876-3783 or self-schedule an appointment by clicking ‘schedule an appointment’ and selecting ‘telehealth‘.
