Why do you believe this provider, agency, or clinic should be listed in this database?
I have additional training in providing culturally competent LGBTQ+ Mental Health care. I am fortunate to work in an independent, feminist clinic providing collaborative care with a team of caring and understanding providers, medical assistants, and support staff.
Does this provider, agency, or clinic receive any regular education on quality of care with LGBTQ+ patients? If so, please describe that here:
At Mabel Wadsworth Center, we receive regular trainings on a variety of issues, and we also engage in significant training and outreach to other local agencies, providers, schools, and the community around the specific health needs of LGBTQ+ clients. In November, 2019, the Clinical Director and I were able to attend the Advancing Excellence in Transgender Health conference in Boston, and bring much of what we learned back to the Center.
If you are submitting an individual provider, what was your impression of the quality of care and interactions with other staff members you encountered in their workplace?
As I am submitting this listing for myself, I hope that the quality of care is always extremely high. I can say that the staff here are all caring and compassionate, and everyone here receives LGBTQ+ trainings on a regular basis.
If you are submitting information about an agency or clinic, please include a detailed list of services offered.
Along with Mental Health Counseling, Mabel Wadsworth Center also offers Primary Care, Women's Health Care, Reproductive Health Care, Gender Affirming Health Care, as well as educational and community support events, such as free weekly yoga.
