What: A support group for young adolescents who identify as LGBTQIA+. Each week the group will focus on a specific topic related to identity development, including areas of social, emotional, and/or physical, and overall health. There will also be general discussion with peer sharing and support.

Why: LGBTQ individuals are at increased risk of isolation, mental health issues, substance abuse and addiction, and certain types of trauma. Additionally, LGBTQ youth have limited access to adequate mental health care and supportive services. This group aims to provide the support that is often lacking for LGBTQ adolescents/tweens.

How: Please email Ellie, our Client Care Coordinator, at or call 763.913.8261 to schedule a group Intake session at least two weeks prior to the start date.

Therapist: Mary Devorak, MS LMFT

Fees: Group cost is $40 for screening and per group session. Sliding fee available, inquire with therapist. Superbills are provided for all group members and are particularly helpful for those who would like to submit to HSA, flex accounts, or insurance providers for out-of-network reimbursement. Therapist may be able to submit out of network insurance claims if requested following payment.
