Our Mission

To inform and empower young people by providing health care, education, and support relating to their sexuality.

Our Vision

A world in which issues related to sex, sexuality, sexual orientation, and gender identity are discussed openly as a natural part of the human experience, and in which teens and young adults have the information, tools, and support they need to be healthy and confident in this aspect of their lives.


The Jocelyn Center is one of the few resources in the area that offer both therapeutic services and psychiatric services, including medication management, on a sliding fee scale to those who qualify. We are one of the few agencies in the United States that will provide psychiatric services for clients who receive therapy at another agency.

Our staff includes a wide range of clinical professionals, including clinical social workers, psychologists, psychoeduational testing experts, psychiatrists, clinical counselors and case managers. This breadth allows us to craft a treatment plan that addresses the specific complexity and severity of each client’s needs, thus ensuring a broad base of excellent opinions resulting in an individualized treatment plan. This comprehensive approach also means an individual can be served at the same location simultaneously by multiple clinical disciplines.
