Carithers celebrates diversity! We seek to be a place of support, encouragement, and evidence-based information for ALL kids and families during the amazing journey from youth through adolescence.  We respect every child’s gender identity and sexual orientation and strive to be a safe place of inclusion and affirmation. Below are links to various organizations and resources (local, regional, and national) to help youth and their families learn more.  We have a host of additional information available through our office, and are happy to discuss any concerns and questions you or your loved ones may have — please don’t hesitate to ask!
