Counseling and
Social Services


YFT offers free counseling to GLBTQ youth aged 14 - 22 years old. Counseling is provided by licensed therapists or therapists working under a supervised license. Those working under a supervised license will be supervised by Robert Ivancic, LPC. Therapists follow all ethical guidelines including confidentiality and keeping therapeutic files. Youth under 18 years old need consent by their parents/guardians. Some issues that may be addressed include, but are not limited to: coming out, family struggles, school issues, isolation, relationships, drug and alcohol abuse, etc.

Referral Services

YFT is proud of our relationship with Promise House. Some services that Promise House offers include an emergency shelter for youth up to 18 years old and a transitional living program for youth 16 - 22 years old. In this way, we can offer services to youth that are homeless or need of respite from their families during their coming out process. A Promise House outreach worker is often available to youth at YFT on Thursday nights.


For more information about either of these services or for information about other available services, please contact the Social Services Director, Bob Ivancic, LPC @
