Flourishing Families Counseling

LGBTQ Therapy

LGBTQ Therapy is a valuable tool for anyone who identifies as LGBTQ and is seeking guidance, understanding or support. Through LGBTQ Therapy, individuals can explore their gender identity and sexual orientation in a safe, judgement-free environment while learning how to best address any issues they may encounter. It can be an empowering experience that leads to greater self-understanding and acceptance.

We specialize in providing specialized care for issues such as coming out, gender identity, family issues, career challenges, and more. 

We understand the unique needs of LGBTQ individuals and couples and are dedicated to helping them navigate their journeys with compassion and understanding. Mary Mou strives to create a safe space for her clients to explore their feelings, work through challenges, find solutions, and promote healing.

  • Feeling lost or confused about your sexual orientation and/or gender identity.
  • Experiencing difficulty in communicating your needs, wants and desires to family, friends, colleagues or partners.
  • Struggling to come out to your loved ones.
  • Feeling anxious or depressed because of rejection, discrimination or social stigma.
  • Coping with changes in relationships due to transitioning.
  • Seeking support for issues related to sexual health and safety.
  • Navigating the different stages of a same-sex relationship or marriage.
  • Exploring the intersections between your LGBTQ identity and other aspects of your life such as race, ethnicity, class or religion.
  • Recovering from trauma related to homophobia, transphobia or other forms of discrimination.
