Support for Gay and Lesbian (LGBTQ) Couples
In addition to managing the issues faced by all couples — issues of roles and responsibilities, financial concerns, intimacy and sexuality, and different communication styles — gay and lesbian couples face the added challenge of nurturing their relationships in a world that is often hostile. Outright rejection or more subtle lack of understanding by family and friends can create an added burden for couples already struggling to create healthy intimate relationships. For gay and lesbian couples choosing to commit to each other in a social environment that does not honor that commitment, making such a commitment can take great courage and inner strength.
The Sagebrush Center for Relationship Therapy provides supportive couples therapy for gay, lesbian or transgendered couples as well as mixed Gay/Lesbian/Straight Getting The Love You Want Workshops.
