LGBTQ+ Couples Counseling

Relationships are incredibly rewarding and can also be hard work. At the Individual & Relationship Therapy Center we welcome diversity in all ways. Our staff is comprised of LGBTQ+ affirming therapists. We believe in a culture that supports love between all humans.

Our team is knowledgeable and experienced in helping our LGBTQ+ community of individuals and couples navigate their relationships. We know our world today causes you to face external pressures and hurdles that are difficult to endure emotionally either individually or as a couple. We are here to create a personable, private, and safe environment that allows you to freely express their relationship struggles.

How Couples or Individual Counseling Can Help Your Relationship

Unfortunately, many LGBTQ+ individuals and couples have had negative or hurtful experiences of therapy in the past. If you have, it would make perfect sense why you may feel uneasy about attending counseling now. We wish to provide you with a different experience and to experience the respect, compassion and support you deserve. Our practice values respect and we believe in helping you feel as comfortable with this process as possible. From there, we will begin to build a relationship with you that will allow you to unpack and address your reasons for coming to therapy.

Couples counseling and individual therapy can help smooth communication lines between you and the people in your world whom you care about. It will help you gain a better understanding of the sticking points that are getting in the way in your relationships. We couples get mixed up in our own emotions that we lose our ability to listen and respond to our partner’s words. We will help you successfully discuss these misinterpretations and confused feelings to build a stronger relationship.

While communication is a word a lot of people use to describe their relationship problems, other issues are often at play. We can help you identify them and work through them through couples therapy or individual counseling. Some common concerns seen in all relationships are:

  • Affairs and infidelity

  • Loss of intimacy

  • Feeling distant from each other

  • Problems resolving conflict

  • The feeling of staying together only for the children

  • Technology issues

Our LGBTQ+ affirming therapists present a judgment-free space to support open and honest conversation that helps uncover and address the challenges you are facing.

When is Counseling Right?
