COUNSELING

For individuals who are HIV+, counseling can assist in understanding HIV infection, finding needed resources and medical care, and adjusting to medication and treatments. Our services help individuals to manage fears and losses, and make decisions regarding disclosure, re-infection risks, relationships, work, and health management. We offer individual therapy, couples counseling, and support groups. Persad Center can help you navigate the challenges of living with HIV.

For more information about counseling services for individuals impacted by HIV/AIDS or to sign up, please call our Service Access Coordinator, Nancy Ferri.
