OUR REVIEW

The team at Journey to Wellness is a regional partner with many LGBTQ+ organizations, with certified therapists in their practice who participate with SafeSpace NOVA and others. Their commitment to equality in mental health care is amazing and has led them to meet with Equality Loudoun several times to work together to find ways to support the community.


As an early adopter of the Equality Allies program, Journey to Wellness demonstrates a commitment to the ideals of diversity, inclusion, and equality. With a thorough review of their business activities, we found no history of discriminatory practices or exclusive reviews.
