Our Gender Affirming Program (GAP) for Transgender and Individuals with Non-Binary Identities is here to assist you whether you are an adult who is just beginning to question your gender and wish to talk to someone about it, an individual wishing to begin medical transition and in need of assessment and letters of support, or in need of assistance with mental health challenges.

Our GAP clinicians are skilled in assisting with challenges such as depression, anxiety, trauma, and many others. Our staff has also been educated on the language and the challenges associated with being part of this community and will treat you with the understanding and respect that you deserve.
