Every Tuesday and Thursday, we are pleased to bring the community an on-site, LGBTQ-friendly counselor/therapist, Gwendolyn Dean. Gwendolyn offers at several 1-hour appointments every Tuesday and Thursday (3:30p and 4:30p). To obtain an appointment you are welcome to email ian@lgbtqconnection.org, call the center (707-251-9432) ahead, or drop-in and sign up for the next available opening that works (often, even same-day). If you are in need, please let us know if Tuesday/Thursday times at our Napa office aren't possible as we can sometimes make exceptions to schedule for other times or other Napa County locations.

There are no forms and no eligibility, meaning ANYONE who comes through us gets easy, free access. Additionally, Gwendolyn loves it (and so do we) when folks just come by for advice or to say hello and meet her even if it's not for a full appointment.

Gwendolyn Dean has more than 20 years of experience working with LGBTQ communities including as an activist, organizer and founder of a university-based LGBT resource center. Gwendolyn is Associate Clinical Social Worker who is happy to support people exploring issues of sexual orientation and gender identity, including, but not limited to: advice, exploring identity, coming out, relationships, dating, stress, civil rights, discrimination, worries, problems (at home, school, work, family, faith community, anywhere), gender, family, complaints, anything you want to know about queer (or straight) sex, self discovery, and much more.

Please contact us if you have any additional questions: ian@lgbtqconnection.org or 707-251-9432.

This free counseling/therpay is available thanks to a partnership with Napa County Health and Human Services Mental Health Division.
