Orientation and Gender Support
The Mental Gym offers counseling to LGBTQ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgendered, Questioning/Queer) individuals experiencing a range of personal and societal challenges.
Supportive services help navigate the realities of prejudice, family of origin adjustment, and work relationship intolerance. Shame and anger, often associated with internalized homophobia and/or actual discrimination, are addressed, discussed, and worked-through.
Same-sex Couples Counseling
Same-sex couples often benefit greatly from counseling, as therapy provides a framework for finding and formulating healthy relationship practices based in whole-person acceptance, instead of learned gender-role rigidity and hetero-normative socialization practices.
Garnering a greater sense of empowerment and pride (pride is the opposite of shame), individuals and couples reconnect with a sense of purpose and growth: Embracing inclusivity, everyone wins.
