Silver Linings Counseling

Helping you find your silver lining





People of all walks of life can benefit from counseling. We all have periods in our lives where we face uncertainty and doubt, maybe in ourselves or maybe in others. If you are a member of the LGBT community, you may already know how invaluable an attentive and affirming ear can be in your life. Maybe you are going through a period in your adolescence where your sexuality or gender identity is starting to emerge and evoke questions. Maybe you are facing isolation, alienation, or discrimination at home or at work because of your sexual orientation or gender identity. Or perhaps, you are struggling with self-acceptance. Whatever it may be, we want to help you achieve a happy and fulfilling life.

There are many topics that can come up during LGBTQ affirming counseling including:

  • Self-Acceptance
  • Coming Out (to myself)
  • Coming Out (to family & friends)
  • Coming Out (to my job)
  • Family Conflict
  • Relationship Conflict
  • Employment Conflict
  • Sexuality
  • Sexual Identity
  • Gender Identity
  • Questioning
  • Depression
  • Isolation
  • Discrimination
  • Bullying / Violence
  • Homophobia
  • Transphobia
  • Substance Abuse
  • Same-Sex Marriage
  • Adoption
  • Parenting

We provide a safe and discreet setting to help you overcome these issues. With help from your therapist, you will explore the thoughts that come up during these difficult situations, express the emotions associated with those thoughts, and analyze the behavior that result from those thoughts and emotions. Counseling can help you reach a happy point in your life by addressing the issue at hand, analyzing the source of conflict, reviewing all possible solutions, and implementing a strategy to achieve your goals.
