Gabe Belzer

Client Services Supervisor (they/theirs)

My name is Gabe Belzer, I am non-binary and use they/them pronouns. I am a Southern California native who moved to Colorado in August of 2021, after completing my bachelor’s in Sociology at the University of California Santa Barbara, and my master’s degree in social work from the University of Southern California. I’m a passionate mental health and social justice advocate, and I’ve worked in a variety of spaces dedicated to uplifting the most vulnerable of our communities. Some of those experiences include working in medical case management, elementary-school based counseling, and non-profits dedicated to closing the education and employment gap for low-income students, utilizing artistic creation to destigmatize mental illness, providing peer counseling for youth in crisis, and three years of advocacy on a sexual assault response hotline. I am thrilled to be back in the field working to support survivors of sexual violence and to be in a space that is dedicated to the mental wellness of our community.
