Caring, confidential, professional counseling for the challenges we all face in life.
Therapy celebrating and supporting the lives of lesbian, gay, bisexual, pansexual, non-binary and transgender people of all ages
We specialize in providing affirming counseling for individuals who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, non-binary, intersexed, or questioning.
GLBTQ Therapy If you already feel strongly connected to your sexual or gender identity, it is important to feel that your counselor understands and supports your life and family. If you are in the process of exploring your gender or sexual identity, it is vital to feel that your therapist is someone who can encourage and support your process of exploration in a nonjudgmental, affirming manner.
Transgender Adults (age 18+)If you are in the process of a gender transition, we offer therapy to support you in your process of seeking physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual wholeness. We provide letters and referrals for hormones and surgery when appropriate, as well as information on other trans-friendly services that might be helpful to you in your process of transition.
Transgender Children & Adolescents (age 2-17)Many children know what their true gender is (even when it does not match their physical body) as early as age two or three. If you think your child may be experiencing gender dysphoria we can provide therapy and psychoeducational materials to support you and your child in understanding where they are in their gender identity development. We provide individual therapy, gender identity assessment, and family therapy for young people experiencing gender dysphoria or questioning their gender identity.
