Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Shana Gordon-Cole "Affirmative therapy for LGBTQ individuals is based on the premise that LGBTQ and heterosexual identities are equally valid. An LGBTQ affirmative counselor has particular knowledge, awareness (specifically self-awareness), and skills specific to competent counseling for LGBTQ individuals. While maintaining a broad view of acceptable lifestyles, LGBTQ-affirmative therapy challenges oppressive stereotypes and systems of thought, and celebrates and advocates for LGBTQ people and their relationships.*  The  American Counseling Association has ethical guidelines for working with the LGBTQ population as well as recently adopted new guidelines for working with the Transgender population as well. We also strictly follow the WPATH Standards of care for working with Transgender individuals.  However, LGBT-Affirming therapy goes beyond just following guidelines, it involves a spirit of humility, respect, and deep understanding of the vast differences in human social ecology."
