Dr. Jack Bartel is a licensed clinical psychologist and LGBTQ+ health educator and consultant. He currently provides affirmative counseling to the LGBTQ+ community and specializes in gender-affirming hormone therapy (GAHT) and gender-affirming surgery evaluations/letters of support. He also has clinical expertise in health psychology, which is the provision of clinical services bridging the gap between medical and mental health care.
He has significant experience working with behavior change interventions with a wide array of individuals from diverse backgrounds; from those who suffer from medical conditions co-occurring with mental illness, to those seeking to more successfully navigate their food intake, exercise goals, or decrease tobacco use.

He has worked in many different clinical settings such as a surgical critical care unit, an inpatient rehabilitation unit, a primary care integrated health setting in a Federally Qualified Health Center, an outpatient behavioral medicine clinic, and a VA Medical Center. He also has experience working with general mental health from depression and anxiety, to coping with large life transitions.

Outside his clinical work, he is an LGBTQ+ health educator and consultant. As a member of the LGBTQ+ community, Dr. Bartel understands the importance of increased education and awareness surrounding the LGBTQ+ community, most importantly the action needed towards change for LGBTQ+ individuals in all spaces. He knows how stressful navigating medical and mental healthcare spaces can be for queer folks and his goal is to help increase awareness and education about how to best serve the LGBTQ+ community. Over the past six years, he has presented over 20 seminars and trainings for health care providers, mental health workers, graduate students, interns, fellows, and faculty on LGBQ+ mental health/healthcare, and more specifically transgender mental health/healthcare.
