LGBTQ+ 

Do you ever feel invisible because you are lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender,, queer? Perhaps your family will always love you but won't accept your true identity or long-term partner. Maybe you believe that you will never find a life partner. Talking to a therapist will helep you acknowledge that you do not have to live in the shadows that a future in the bright sun awaits you, and that it is possible to have a long-term committed relationship and you deserve to have that type of love in your life. After therapy you will 

  • open your heart to a long term relationship

  • Have the confidence to openly express yourself

  • Eliminate the unhealthy burden of living in the closet

  • Build of community of loving supporters
