Specialties include providing couples therapy and pre-marital counseling for all couples including those in the LGBTQI community. Couples can learn how to relate to each other in a more responsive way and use the skills that are critical for maintaining healthy, fulfilling and lasting relationships.
Even though you are a proud member (affiliate) to the LGBTQI community, feelings of isolation, depression and anxiety can be a well known part of being who you are. Homophobia, internalized homophobia, transphobia and the coming out process can add additional weight to an already difficult spell of life stressors. Through personal growth and change in a safe space, members of the LGBTQI community can find happiness and stability while creating new patterns of healthy behaviors.
Dorian can help you learn how to improve mood and self-esteem, manage feelings of panic and anxiety and communicate effectively in relationships. Counseling can also help you prepare to talk to parents, children, or other family members addressing issues of sexuality, and other challenges a family can face. Where ever you are in your process of change, we can walk with you.
