Sourcetree SSH OS X

I'm trying to connect to GitHub through SourceTree on OS X using SSH. Even though I can connect fine command line, I can't seem to work with any repo through SSH in SourceTree with the error:

Permission denied (publickey).

All the help topics I have found online suggest configuring the SSH client in SourceTree. However, all of that documentation seems to be for the Windows version (Tools->Options or something). How can I access the SSH Preferences on the OS X version of SourceTree?
