Risk Assessment ⁄ Prevention Counseling

If you’re concerned about becoming infected with HIV, our Testing and Prevention Manager, Andy, is here to help you assess your risk. He’ll provide prevention information and counseling and help you develop a plan to lower the risk for yourself and your partners.

Risk assessment involves reviewing a variety of medical, psychological and social aspects of your personal situation. Based on that, prevention counseling can be as simple as providing you some basic education or may include a more detailed exploration of your needs and circumstances. Andy will take into account your feelings about sexual activity; talk with you about the barriers to safer sex; examine perceptions that can affect risky practices; and arrive at a personalized plan that focuses on healthy behaviors.

If you have questions or need more information, call Andy at (415) 457-2487 x-108 or email him at afyne@thespahrcenter.org to schedule an appointment.
