We understand mental illness and the difficulties it creates for those who suffer from it. At our San Diego Mental Health Treatment Center we are sensitive to your challenges. Solara will find every possible solution to enable you to live the life that you are meant to live.


Sexual Identity Issues

The phrase “sexual identity issues” is a broad term that can apply to anybody who feels confused about or conflicted by their sexual desires and/or practices. These feelings can be intense and are sometimes exacerbated by societal stigmas or pressure from peers and loved ones.  If not resolved, they can lead to feelings of self-loathing, hopelessness and isolation, as well as the development of anxiety and/or depression, sometimes to an intense degree. These feelings can be particularly acute when coupled with a co-occurring mental health disorder, diagnosed or not.


Our treatment for sexual identity issues in San Diego can help ease these damaging thoughts. At Solara Mental Health, we understand how vital it is for individuals to find congruence in and peace with their sexual identity. As such, our psychiatric facility’s program is specifically designed to help veterans struggling with sexual identity issues. This begins with the environment in our mental health facilities, which is open, welcoming, and stigma-free.  This environment is fostered by our understanding veterans and compassionate clinicians.

Here, veterans can feel comfortable, safe, and supportive as they seek to heal through a variety of therapeutic modalities.  These include individual therapy sessions led by a clinician with specific expertise in gender and sexuality issues, group therapy with understanding peers, and holistic therapies. As needed, veterans can also receive specific treatment for co-occurring mental health disorders. Through this process, veterans come to a deeper understanding of themselves, helping them find lasting healing and peace.

What Our Clients Say

Michelle Family

I want to thank you and the entire staff and support system at Solara for taking such good care of my sister. On behalf of my entire family, we want you all to understand that your patience and kindness stretches further than you can see… Thank you, again and again, from the bottom of my heart.


We are so grateful to you for the treatment and care you provided our daughter. She is doing unbelievably well now thanks to your program. We will gladly tell anyone we encounter that needs treatment about the wonderful work you do at Solara.

R.M. – Father

If not for Solara Mental Health, I am almost positive that our daughter would not be as advanced in her treatment, and would not have the almost miraculous confident and positive outlook that she has.


The program has given me the tools I needed to really gain stability. For the first time in years - maybe for as long as I can remember, actually, I’m learning how to cope and manage my stressors and triggers. I now believe that I can find some relief and happiness.


The Solara Treatment Program was a life-changing experience for me. To be able to heal in such a beautiful, peaceful environment, with such a terrific treatment team, was so amazingly positive. I have found my true self, again. I thank you and my family thanks you for helping me become the person I was meant to be.


I have never felt better than I do now, since completing your program. The truly caring and supportive staff and the intensive program changed my life. What a neat place to stay for treatment - I love Pacific Beach! I have learned skills and behavior to move forward with my life thanks to you.


Even though I’m not religious, I realized when I got sober that for the first time in my life I wanted to explore my spiritual side. I benefited hugely from the individual spiritual sessions that I had with Chris. I’m really grateful for that aspect of the whole treatment experience.

Watson Family

Solara’s program was such a positive experience for our mom (and for us)! She had become almost impossible to deal with. Your entire staff was phenomenally supportive and kind and patient with her. We feel like we’ve got our mom back, now.


The Solara program is truly amazing. I’ve never had more clarity or more good energy in my entire life. The attention the physicians and the therapists gave me was outstanding. I feel like they truly understood and addressed my issues, which had consumed my life for years. Thank you all.


The therapists and counselors and really whole team were extremely beneficial to me and my understanding of my issues. The treatment plan they developed was exactly what I needed


Solara was truly a life-changing experience for me and for our children, because of what you did for my wife! The treatment team was phenomenally supportive and perfect for helping her with her anxiety and depression. We are all now moving forward to put our lives back together and it started with you all in Pacific Beach. Thank you for what you do.

M.P. – Father

Your program provided our daughter with the most masterful therapist we have ever encountered (and we have used many).  She has had an unbelievable ability to see the long-term trajectory of our daughter’s treatment and to approach her treatment in stages that fit where my daughter’s development was.  We can’t say enough positive about her.
