Counseling for Same sex Couples and LGBTQ Community
Therapy for your heart & mind.
Same sex partners have similar issues and problems as straight couples. Like many straight couples, same sex partners enter couples therapy to navigate the everyday stressors of life impacting their relationship, and to build a healthy foundation and form long lasting, stable relationships.
At Willamette Sky counseling we understand that the social context in which you and your partner navigate your relationship differs greatly due to the influences of the dominant heterosexual culture, and that it can add extreme stress to your relationship if every day supports including familial, legal, religious, and economic are lacking.
