OUR TREATMENT PHILOSOPHY
At Trailhead Treatment Center, LLC, we specialize in treating men’s mental health issues. This often includes addressing complex trauma, addiction issues, issues related to gay and other sexual minority men, anxiety, depression, and the symptoms “covert male depression,” which often includes sexual addictions and compulsions, substance abuse, emotional numbness, rage, perfectionism, self-criticism, and some narcissistic traits.
As a treatment center, we do not discriminate based on race, religion, ethnicity, nationality, sexual orientation, or gender expression/identity. All candidates should be fully affirming of the LGBT+ community.
Sexual compulsion is the primary complaint of many referred clients we receive at this time, with frequent comorbidity of ADHD and narcissistic behavioral patterns. Any clinician interested in working at Trailhead must have previous experience working with sexual addictions and compulsions or be open to learning about these specific conditions.
We are open to and welcome other clinicians’ specialties and interests under the umbrella of men’s issues. For instance, some of our clinicians focus specifically on young men while others focus on working with gay men. But understand that, due to our current referral funnel, you will most likely be receiving a large number of clients self-reporting struggles with sexual compulsivity.
