Counseling at the PRIDE Center

Pacific Pride Foundation's counseling center annually trains a team of 6 to 8 counseling interns (a majority of whom identify as LGBTQ+) in issues relevant to LGBTQ mental health--with full, robust training in best practices for Transgender (Non-Binary included) clients. Interns additionally receive training in supporting the mental health of those living with HIV/AIDS. 

Our interns are overseen by Bren Fraser, LMFT, and offer high-quality individual, couples, and family therapy for a sliding scale fee.

Our counseling interns also serve on LGBTQ sensitivity panels, collaborate as trainers with PPF sensitivity trainings, and visit our PPF Youth & Young Adult Groups to lecture on specialized mental health topics.

As they become licensed, our interns move on to become critical leaders in local and national mental health circles.
