Affirmative LGBTQIA Therapy for Teens and Adults
Affirmative LGBTQIA Therapy celebrates all identities, genders, sexual orientation, and their relationships and challenges the negative influences that transphobia, homophobia, and heterosexism have on the lives of their LGBTQIA+ clients. These influences can also be internalized and cause great harm to anyone in the LGBTQIA+ population. Those internalized beliefs will be challenged and reframed to have the client view themselves in a more positive way. Couples work will be looked at from a non-heteronomative lens meaning that the unique challenges and gifts that come from a gay, lesbian, bisexual, asexual or gender expansive/gender queer relationship are celebrated and addressed.
My office, both online and in person, is a safe space to work on co-occurring mental health issues, family challenges, life transitions, and relationships. Couple and Family work is also supported and encouraged.
