LGBT counseling. 
Couples.

Your relationship is like many others, but also different given the complexities that you face. We're here to help you find clarity and connection with specialized couples counseling. You may be dealing with anxiety, depression, stress, adjustment, etc. These issues may have nothing to do with sexual orientation or gender identity. Yet, a counselor who specializes in LGBT identity issues can offer unique insight and perspectives on life situations that are connected to the LGBT identity and lifestyle. We remove the stigma and give you that safe, supported place to explore, gain insight, identifiy possibilities and thrive. E-Therapy Cafe provides expert assistance and experienced guidance that gets you back on track and feeling good.

Couples differs from individual therapy in that the primary therapeutic focus involves improving the relationship rather than on helping someone with his/her individual issues.  The primary goal of any couples counseling is to increase your understanding of yourself, your partner, and the patterns of interactions that have become detrimental to the relationship. Once these have been explored and understood, you are taught how to change your feelings, thoughts, and actions, to change ineffective or destructive behaviors into positive ones that will enhance your relationship.

Our therapists are trained to help you establish a vision of how you want your relationship to be and then to help you make the necessary changes to achieve that vision. 

 

Our overarching goal of couples counseling:

  • Understand how external factors (i.e. family values, religion, lifestyle and culture) affect your relationship.

  • Understand how social stigma contributes to your relationship dynamics.

  • Reflect on the past and how it operates in the present.

  • Communicate in a more constructive way.

  • Learn why arguments escalate.

  • Negotiate and resolve conflicts where possible.

  • Envision and create the relationship you desire. 

Individual. 

Coping with discrimination and oppression, coming out to one’s family, and sorting out an “authentic” sense of self in the face of social expectations and pressures can lead to higher levels of depression, anxiety, substance use, and other mental health concerns for LGBT people. So, we strive to provide a safe place to explore issues without fear of encountering prejudice, fear, ignorance, homophobia, transphobia or heterosexism. We understand that your issues or therapy goals may or may not relate directly to sexual orientation or gender identity. We do not want you to avoid discussing your way of life, relationships and family, or spend valuable therapy time explaining LGBT issues- we get it. 

Your therapist will work collaboratively with you each step of the way to identify issues and set goals.
