Welcome to the website of Gaylesta: The Psychotherapist Association for Gender & Sexual Diversity. We provide mental health services including therapist referrals, education and consultation. Our members offer a wide range of specializations, allowing us to serve as a unique resource both to the LGBTQ communities and to other service providers. Join Gaylesta today! Let us connect you with other professionals through our members-only listserve, forums and groups. We work to promote awareness of the special skills our members have to offer the LGBTQ communities and the general public. We promote your practice through our online referral service, through which our members can market their practices, as well as through community outreach; advertising; and public speaking.
About Us Our formation and mission was inspired and driven by the shared vision of our 4 founding clinicians. We 4 became friends and colleagues while working together at New Leaf Services, which had to close its doors October 15th, 2010, after 35 years of serving the LGBTQQI community. Motivated by a mutual ambition to continue providing quality therapeutic services to the queer community in the Bay Area, we quickly gathered forces and were able to open our doors for service October 18th, 2010, in our new home in the Castro neighborhood of San Francisco. We are very excited to continue on in 2015 with a steadily growing and diverse client base and an additional 10 post graduate interns. Plans are underway to continue growing our post graduate intern training program this fall, strengthen our new collaborations with many LGBTQQI focused agencies here in San Francisco and to continue to spread the word about our new organization. Mission Statement The mission of the SF Therapy Collective is to serve and empower the many LGBTQQI identified individuals, couples and families of the Bay Area through building and growing a mental health practice and related services that focuses on issues that impact the queer community today. With special attention to respecting diversity and collaborating with the various agencies that currently assist our community, our vision and purpose is to enhance the quality of the queer community at large and to support its individual members.
We here at Queer LifeSpace firmly believe that a queer community that invests in its mental health is a queer community that thrives. This belief has fueled our dedication to providing effective, affordable mental health and substance abuse services to as much of our community as we possibly can.We are your very own community’s organization. An organization that is made up of us, especially for us.
