Express fully who you are.

We’re here to support you as you
discover your most authentic self,
wherever you are on that journey.

We believe that gender identity, expression and sexual orientation are essential to shaping who we are, how we are seen and move through the world, and our relationship with ourselves and others.

We are committed to providing affirmative care for the LGBTQIA+ community. We work with people of all ages – including children, adolescents, young adults – and their families, friends and support networks.

We personalize our clinical approaches, using multidimensional models of sexual orientation and gender identity, identifying your challenges, strengths and goals in working together.

Connections Health offers individual, one-on-one counseling, group therapy, relationship and family counseling, and custom plans and services.  We offer flexible therapy options, services, schedules and resources that fit with your life and commitments.

We support your mental and emotional health needs. We also address complex issues as we navigate the intersections of multiple identities and encounters with stigmatization, health disparities, school and career-related experiences and nontraditional relationship models and families.
