Our Team.

Our dedicated staff of professionals include: nurse practitioner, registered nurses, licensed marriage and family therapist (LMFT), associate marriage and family therapist (AMFT), health/wellness promoter and caring support staff.

Our therapists and nurses have received training in assisting the LGBTQIA+ populations. We are actively involved in continue training to make sure the services we provide are LGBTQIA + affirming.

A large portion of the clients we see are exploring the coming out process or needed a safe place to talk about their gender and/or sexual identity. We welcome these populations and have improved our intake forms to include preferred pronouns, Gender and Sexual identity.

The North County Campus has medical and mental health facilities as well, however, students are encouraged to access the San Luis Obispo Health Center for any services not available on-site at NCC.
