LGBTQ2S+

LGBTQ2S+ Resources

Getting ongoing support as an individual in the LGBTQ2S community can be difficult. This page provides information on support groups, committees, drop in centers, websites, etc. specifically catering to the community.

Roots in Wellness provides a safe, confidential, and compassionate environment where you can be yourself without fear of judgment. All of our therapists are warm, welcoming, open-minded, and caring. Click here to book an appointment today with one of our psychotherapists.

In addition, there is information below on how to access hormone replacement therapy. We have come to realize that this is a vastly misunderstood process, and our mission is to help make this information readily available.
