Why 2nd Story for LGBT Counseling?
Many counselors and therapists advertise LGBT counseling services but few possesses the necessary skills, training and understanding to assist individuals and couples facing queer related issues.
In truth, LGBT persons often have experienced a lifetime of being misunderstood, primarily out of fear of being judged and in some cases, legitimate concerns over emotional and physical abuse. And so for some LGBT persons, past trauma are a reality impacting how they experience life in the here and now.
At 2SC, our individual counselors and therapists provide a warm, safe, affirming and gentle environment to explore these issues in a non-judgmental setting.
Our goal is to help you better understand who you are while celebrity your individualism. We believe that diversity only enriches humanity, which is why so many of our therapists integrate concepts of humanistic psychology into the therapy and counseling process.
We hope you consider us as part of your search for a good therapist to help you with your needs.
