The Montrose Center has one of the most comprehensive array of counseling services among LGBTQ centers in the nation. Our licensed master level therapists know what it means to be Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer or a sexual minority, and can guide you through life’s hurdles while linking you with other important and useful resources throughout the community to help you achieve greater health and fulfillment. When you’re ready, so are we!
Do I have to be LGBTQ to access services?
No. However, some services are designed specifically with LGBTQ and HIV+ individuals and issues in mind. Please read the program descriptions for more information. If you feel you may be better served elsewhere, we can help by providing referrals.
Why choose the Montrose Center?
Trust and honesty are the basis of any therapeutic relationship. We understand that your issues or therapy goals may or may not relate directly to sexual orientation or gender identity. Still, you shouldn’t have to avoid discussing your way of life, relationships and family, or spend valuable therapy time explaining LGBTQ issues, just because your therapist is unfamiliar with them.
How much does it cost?
We work with what you have. The Center accepts all insurance, including Medicare/Medicaid. Discounted fees are offered if you have no insurance and/or limited means. You may also qualify for grant subsidies to cover all or a portion of fees and co-payments based on your income. The bottom line is this: Cost does not have to be a barrier to getting the care you need! Talk to us before making that decision.
