What we offer
Whole-person, gender-affirming care. All are welcome!
Our staff is here for you.
Welcome to the Gender Wellness Clinic at the Kingston Family Health Center. Our staff is here to provide coordinated gender-affirming care and help you build a team of respectful providers. We offer whole-person care, giving you the tools to pursue the health and well-being of your true self.
Your first appointment will be a one-hour session where you can meet with a provider and share in detail your reason for reaching out to us. You can use this time to talk through options with your provider and discuss which services may be appropriate. Afterward, you will have follow-up visits lasting 30 minutes.
If you prefer to do your appointment by video or phone, we also offer telehealth. Let us know when you make your appointment if you would prefer an in-person visit at the Kingston Family Health Center or a telehealth appointment.
We are located inside the Kingston Family Health Center.

Licensed Mental Health Clinician
Sascha (pronouns: she/her) earned her Masters of Education in Mental Health Counseling from Fordham University.
