We offer extensively trained counselors in HIV for Hypnotherapy and Psychotherapy to our members. In fact, we are the only US agency which offers mental health with HIV/AIDS as the focus. Our goal is to help with coping and understand feelings, effects of medications, stigmatization, guilt, thoughts and behaviors. Please contact Jamie Baker at 323-874-4322 x13 to make appointments.
In a unique partnership between Being Alive and Antioch University Los Angeles’ LGBT Specialization, Antioch Alive counseling services are provided by appointment after an intake specialist conference.
Antioch Alive therapists are student trainees and post-graduate interns offering Being Alive members the opportunity to address a wide range of life’s stresses and psychological problems including but certainly not limited to living with HIV.
Our mental health program, Antioch Alive, is provided through a joint association between Being Alive and the LGBT Specialization in Antioch University’s Masters in Clinical Psychology program. Our program is considered the “gold standard” in psychotherapy with counselors who are extensively trained in HIV and LGBT Affirmative psychotherapeutic clinical skills. This gives our therapists a full understanding of the complexities of dealing with HIV as part of the mental health component for our members, making Being Alive’s psychotherapy program a most unique opportunity for those living with HIV. The mental health program collaboratively partners with all other Being Alive services including emotional peer support, treatment education, prevention, advocacy, wellness and social services.
Antioch Alive also maintains a “no-waiting list” goal in psychotherapy, along with same-day crisis management emergency intakes whenever possible. This has garnered Being Alive and Antioch Alive with tremendous amount of praise and respect from our community HIV care partners.
Every member is treated with respect and without judgment. The Being Alive Experience cannot be found anywhere else! Client-member wellness is our primary concern throughout their wellness journey. Being Alive empowers our client-members on a pathway to wellness.
