If alcohol or drugs are negatively impacting your family, or interfering with living the kind of life you want to live, there are a number of ways therapy can help.
Whether lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, or gender nonconforming, your therapist should be affirming, culturally competent, and sensitive to the unique challenges of both you and the LGBT community.
Interpersonal relationships – whether with a spouse, lover, or friend – inevitably generate challenges. A therapist can help create less conflict and more peace, whether individually or as a couple.
Whether you’re struggling with occasional, or unrelenting, sadness, you don’t have to continue to suffer. Finding your way out of a dark place often requires the help of a trained professional.
A good therapist can help unravel underlying family issues that may be impeding your growth and can lead conversations amongst family members to help resolve conflicts and to create understanding.
The profound pain and sadness that follow the loss of a loved one are difficult and complicated emotions to manage and process. Therapy can help you experience the grieving process and find relief.
