The Center for Community Healing


Mental Health Care For Us By Us

The Center for Community Healing is a counseling center based in Madison, Wisconsin dedicated to serving LGBTQIA+ individuals, couples, and families throughout the State of Wisconsin.
​Queer folx in distress deserve access to skilled clinicians who understand their lived experiences and identities.  We are queer and trans clinicians who have significant clinical expertise in supporting recovery from trauma, managing anxious and depressive symptoms, and making relationships work for you. 

As a practice we work to center and grow collective resilience, and deepen understandings of the ways oppression acts within and against us. We work to reclaim and rediscover individual and collective narratives that highlight our acts of resistance, and repossess our truths from those who benefit when we doubt ourselves, our courage, and our realities. 

As our beloved transcestor Marsha P. Johnson said, "I may be crazy, but that don't make me wrong."



Counseling for individuals, intimate partners, and families.
