Spruce areas of Expertise

Spruce Mountain Inn


Spruce Mountain Inn cultivates an affirming environment for those who are transgender. We recognize how difficult it may be for an individual struggling with gender identity. Transgender clients may have experienced years of emotional distress or worry about judgement from friends and family.

Therapists help clients work through issues associated with their identity as transgender, gender fluid, or gender non-conforming. SMI supports freedom of gender expression and attire and acknowledges choice of gender pronoun(s). We also recognize that gender issues are not always the source of emotional discomfort, and our therapists will help the client explore other fears and anxieties that may exist. The work done in these areas will help lay a healthy and solid foundation for exploring one’s gender identity, while avoiding this work can make the exploration more difficult.

Residential treatment is an immersive, community-based approach that has the potential to be much more effective than treatment received in someone's typical living environment. The benefits of residential treatment for anxiety/depression/OCD include:

Thank you for supporting me in my journey and all the difficulties I have had. You all have taught me a lot, especially self-care maintenance and self-expression. You helped me learn to respect myself and feel that I am worthy.

We are very pleased and delighted at the progress our son has made in the time he has been at Spruce, and we can see and hear the results through visits and conversations. He has definitely gained responsibility and self-esteem. We feel his life has been turned around during his stay there and for that we are forever grateful.
