There is a reality to the concern around finding a safe place. Within the LGBTQ+ community, individuals face countless stages of their lives, in which they've at some point in time asked, Will I be safe?
As counselors working with an Emotionally Focused Therapy approach, we value building that safety and security for each and every client that walks through our door.
One of the very questions we might be asked is, Are you comfortable working with a same-sex couple? And the answer is simple. Yes.
Focused on relationship distress and building secure attachment, research around EFT has conveyed the message that, as therapists, we are responsible for cultivating a collaborative and empathetic approach to our clients’ experiences. For those within the LGBTQ+ community, we are dedicated to nurturing this environment for each of you.
Not only are those within the LGBTQ+ community faced with distress in relationships, but they are also conflicted with societal and historical indifference.
It is our goal, just as it is with every person we work with, to understand what might be holding back individual's from sharing their vulnerable, deepest emotions and attachment needs with those they love. It is challenging, the various battles we must face, but cultivating a safe and secure environment to untangle insecure ways of connection is embedded within our practice.
We have built our practice on the notion that we can change One Heart at a Time.
We have held ourselves to the standard that we must continue to grow personally and as professionals. This requires continued knowledge of understanding relational, societal, cultural and familial impacts on building strong, irreversible bonds.
