Sex and Relationships
LGBTQIA+ Affirming counseling
Ascend Counseling and Neurotherapy offers counseling services to members of the LGBTQ+ community provided by a professional who is a member of the community. It is an unfortunate reality for members of the LGBTQ+ community that some health care professionals are not accepting of LGBTQ+ identities, and many who are accepting do not have a broad knowledge of the community. Working with a provider who is knowledgeable about LGBTQ+ issues can make a world of difference. Counseling can be much more effective when clients do not have to teach their provider basic knowledge about their culture.
Celebrating All Relationships
Humans are hard-wired to be in relationship with each other, and we believe that all relationships, regardless of their structure, should be celebrated and supported. Ascend is committed to providing an affirming, inclusive environment for individuals and couples seeking mental health care. Our services are provided by a professional who is a member of the community and is skilled at helping reduce the anxiety and fear of judgment that is often a barrier to therapy for those with non-traditional relationship configurations.
