Mindful Life Counseling is committed to providing an affirming space for the LGBTQ+ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, plus intersex, and any and all expressions and orientations including asexual, demisexual, polyamourous, e.g.) population.
Our approach to therapy ensures a positive view of LGBTQ+ identities and relationships and acknowledges the harmful influences that homophobia, transphobia, and heterosexism have on the lives of LGBTQ+ clients.
We understand the emotional impact of living in a heteronormative and gender-binaristic society. These marginalized and discriminatory experiences can trigger our biological response to stress, flooding the body with adrenaline and cortisol, the hormones responsible for our fight-or-flight response. While this response is natural, elevated levels of these hormones can lead to negative health outcomes. That’s why at Mindful Life Counseling we believe in a holistic approach to therapy that addresses the cumulative physical, mental and emotional impact; ultimately supporting clients to live a harmonious life.
