About

Identifying as an LGBTQ+ couple comes with its own unique challenges. From coming out as LGBTQ+ to yourself (self-acceptance) and initiating “the talk” with family and friends to addressing issues of discrimination, LGBTQ+ couples have extra considerations to discuss in their relationships. Every relationship is unique and comes with their own innate obstacles; sometimes, LGBTQ+ couples encounter obstacles that not everyone can relate to.

LGBTQ+ competent counselors specialize in the obstacles that tend to be unique to the LGBTQ+ community. They can help encourage you to accept your sexual orientation or gender identity and navigate the emotions of the coming out process, address inginternalized homophobia or spiritual distress, empower you to articulate expectations for your romantic/sexual relationships in regards to “out-ness”, commitment, sexual satisfaction, fidelity, marriage, childbirth, parenting, and more.

Common Challenges

  • coming out
  • contradictory viewpoints
  • sexual health
  • family acceptance
  • discrimination
  • family and parenting
