Gay Therapist and LGBT Friendly
Trying to find a gay therapist in Chicago or a counselor that is familiar with gay, lesbian and bisexual matters can sometimes be a challenge. This is particularly true when there are counseling needs connected to dating and romance or marriage and family. To keep it real – the issues that impact LGBT individuals are often unique in nature.
And while many counselors “bill” themselves as being knowledgeable about the gay community, a good deal of them lack the proper knowledge, training or insight to understand the unique dynamics that are at play when it comes to the GLBT community.

Gay Therapist for Insight
Our counselors, therapists and relationship experts want to help you identify the barriers that may be keeping you or your relationship from reaching its full potential. If you are gay, it can often be helpful to work with a gay therapist or gay affirming therapist so you do not have to worry about “editing” what you say. Counseling and therapy should be about insight and new directions – and that cannot happen if you are afraid of being who you are.
