Who We Are

Canopy Medical Clinic strives to be a radically inclusive, affirming, and sex positive clinic. Since opening our doors in early 2020, we’ve welcomed patients who are seeking an inclusive and welcoming medical facility. We specialize in Sexual Health and LBGTQIA+ Health. We are an affirming practice and welcome all LGBTQIA+ individuals and allies. 

We strive to provide the best care possible, especially to individuals with historically marginalized identities or who may be treated poorly in healthcare. This includes women, LBGTQIA+ individuals, and people seeking mental health treatment. Canopy Medical Clinic’s staff has the responsibility to educate themselves about their own biases towards those of different races, creeds, identities, cultures, mental abilities, sexual and/or gender orientations, HIV status, physical abilities, etc., and then to seek out education and consultation to prevent biases from interfering with our patients’ healthcare needs. We are committed to being a leader in affirming healthcare practices. We provide educational and training opportunities to organizations within our community to help spread awareness and information regarding LBGTQIA+ healthcare barriers and current best practices.

 

Canopy’s Peer Navigation Program services are designed to support our neighbors and community members living with HIV. We provide numerous mental health services for clients living with HIV, including medical care, individual therapy, support groups and peer navigation services.
