Mental Health

Lyon-Martin recognizes the relationship between the physical, emotional and psychological aspects of a patient’s health. Our philosophy is to offer a holistic approach to care, attempting to address each of these factors. To that end, our mental health providers closely collaborate with our medical providers to offer a range of services that support patients’ emotional and psychological well-being. These services are affirmative, sex-positive, respectful and culturally sensitive.

Our therapists are Licensed Clinical Social Workers (LCSWs) with expertise in the following areas:

  • Gender transition and trans identities
  • Lesbian, gay, bisexual, queer and questioning identities
  • Reduction of the harmful effects of substance use
  • Eating disorders and other compulsive behaviors
  • Depression, anxiety, and PTSD (Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder)

Services include:

  • Short-term psychotherapy (typically 12-20 sessions)
  • Motivational counseling to encourage behavior change and reduce harm
  • Therapy groups
  • Psychiatric Evaluation (typically 1-3 sessions)
  • Psychotropic medication management through primary care

In order to participate we require a brief mental health screening to determine eligibility. 

We encourage anyone attending group therapy to also be engaged in individual therapy either at Lyon-Martin or elsewhere.
