LGBTQ+ Relationship Therapy

LGBTQ+ Therapy Team

We are painstakingly aware that many LGBTQ+* individuals & families experience widespread discrimination in politically conservative states, therefore, Therapy with Heart is proud to offer counseling services that counter this bias in the heart of Scottsdale, Arizona.

LGBTQ+ Affirmative Therapy is a specific style of counseling where your therapist not only accepts, but encourages you to live with honesty and integrity within whichever identities are true for you. LGBTQ+ Affirmative Therapists do not attempt to eliminate or change any gender or sexual related activity, conversely, LGBTQ+ Affirmative Therapists work collaboratively with you to meet your goals while embracing and celebrating your unique identities.

LGBTQ+ Affirmative Therapists take the term “LGBT Friendly” a step further, complementing our bona fide interest in working with gender and sexual minorities with specialized trainings, certifications, and experience working with LGBTQ+ clients.

Therapy with Heart is proud to offer LGBTQ+ Affirmative Therapy services for LGBTQ+ individuals, couples, and families navigating any life transition (i.e. couple/family conflict, depression, anxiety, grief & loss, etc.), in addition to the following specific areas:
-Same-Sex Premarital/Marital Counseling
-Foster Parenting/Adoption
-Blended Families
-Non-Monogamy
-Polyamory
-Sexual Concerns
-Gender Transitions
-Navigating “Coming Out”
-Faith Transitions

* “LGBTQ+” includes, but not limited to, the following identities: lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, questioning, queer, genderqueer, intersex, asexual, pansexual, drag, +.
