LGBTQ+ Issues

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 adult love, research around EFT has conveyed the

                                       message that, as therapists, we are responsible for being collaborative and empathetic around

                                     our clients experiences. 

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 with those they love. It is challenging, the various battles we must face, but finding a safe and secure environment to untangle insecure ways of connection is vital. 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.
