Creating Freedom & Self-Efficacy Through Safe, Collaborative, & Empowering Services.

RAI is dedicated to providing quality services to folx within the LGBTQQIP2SA+ community (and their families) and aims to dismantle barriers to care so that all clients find the freedom and resources they need to live full, authentic lives.

We believe affordable care is a fundamental right. RAI works to ensure quality therapy is accessible for all clients.

“There is no formula when it comes to gender and sexuality. Yet it is often only people whose gender identity and/or sexual orientation negates society’s heteronormative and cisnormative standards who are targets of stigma, discrimination, and violence. I wish that instead of investing in these hierarchies of what’s right and who’s wrong, what’s authentic and who’s not, and ranking people according to these rigid standards that ignore diversity in our genders and sexualities, we gave people freedom and resources to define, determine, and declare who they are.”
