Group Counseling for LGBTQ+ Teens - will resume in fall 2023!

Group Counseling for LGBTQ+ Teens aims to foster a sense of belonging and community and help to normalize the experiences that participants are going through. LGBTQ+ youth often struggle with feeling “different” than their peers, or feel like no one understands what they are going through. They want a place where they can be free to express themselves and meet other LGBTQ+ youth but often feel this is lacking in their lives. Through sharing, listening and participating in activities, these groups can help fill that void in their lives while developing skills of self compassion, active listening, empathy and communication with support from the facilitator.

  • You must register in advance for the full series. Registration is $240.

Group Counseling for Parents/Guardians of LGBTQ Youth will resume in the fall!

Group Counseling for Parents and Guardians of LGBTQ+ Youth will give caregivers a venue to discuss the challenges and celebrations they are experiencing and will help foster a sense of community and shared experience among participants. When you are going through a difficult time, it is often comforting to know that you are not alone, and that there are others who are facing similar challenges. With support from the facilitator, caregivers will take turns sharing, listening and responding, and will find support and community to help them become the best caregivers they can be for their child.
