At Compass, we take pride in offering affirming, respectful care to everyone who comes in our door. We have multiple staff members who are part of the LGBTQ+ community, and all members of our clinical and administrative staff are dedicated to providing LGBTQ+ affirming mental healthcare.

At Compass, you’ll find:

  • Psychotherapy and testing in an environment that actively affirms LGBTQ+ identities
  • Assessments and letters for gender-affirming healthcare
  • All-gender restrooms
  • Kink-affirming therapy
  • Poly-affirming therapy

Need Crisis Help?

We’re proud of the work we do at Compass, but no therapist can be available 24/7. If you need support outside of our business hours, consider these affirming hotlines. These are resources you can use whether you’re actively worried about your safety or just need someone to talk to.
