For more than 30 years, HGI has used a post-modern, collaborative approach to provide therapeutic mental health services to those in the community who are often underserved, such as children, families in crisis, trauma victims and the uninsured. Our unique methods create an atmosphere in which solutions rely heavily on the client’s input, strengths and resiliency.
Many of HGI’s clients are unable to afford mental health services and require financial assistance. To help ensure that every member of our community receives the counseling they need, we offer a sliding fee scale that allows clients to pay as little as $25 per session. But we are only able to do so through the support of our donors.
In addition to our counseling services, HGI is world-renowned for our training and research programs. Each year, we train as many as six Masters and Doctoral level interns in collaborative modality. We have also had five Fulbright scholars study at HGI, and our summer sessions held in Mexico are sold out year after year.
