Behavioral Health Team
TruEvolution’s Behavioral Health team offers individual, couples, family, and group therapy to support the emotional and physical well-being of clients. We are committed to providing services that are affirmative, sex-positive, culturally competent, and trauma-informed care to address the mental and emotional health needs of members of the community with a special emphasis of the needs and strengths of the LGBTQ+ community. Services include:
- - Individual therapy and counseling services

- - TransHealth Services: letters of support for gender affirming related surgical procedures and name/gender biomarker changes; endocrinology linkage
- - Biopsychosocial assessments
- - Support Groups
- - Substance use assessment and referrals
All TruEvolution clients in crisis receive a free Behavioral Medicine (BMed) consultation, a 20-minute intervention to assess emotional stability and mental health concerns expressed during a crisis (e.g. newly-diagnosed with HIV, recently displaced, traumatic or violent traumatic social episode). Eligible clients are enrolled into ongoing clinically-supervised counseling designed to achieve specific mental and emotional wellness goals outlined by client and clinician.
Transgender Counseling and Education
The transgender wellness sessions offer specialized information and support to TruEvolution clients of transgender experience, including information and linkage to Trans health services, access to TruEvoution behavioral health and case management, including assessment and letters of support for gender affirming related surgeries, and individual and couples therapy. Services are available in both English and Spanish.
Substance Use Assessment and Referral
A case manager can connect people with concerns about drug, alcohol, sex, and/or internet use to resources needed. Whether people are seeking to reduce their use or completely stop, our case managers offer a range of referrals to fit people’s needs and goals, including detox and treatment programs, and ongoing outpatient therapy.
We offer a range of groups providing support and counseling in San Bernardino and Riverside available in both English and Spanish. Our support groups are open to anyone wishing to enroll as a TruEvolution group member. Support groups are free and open to the public, regardless of their insurance coverage.
