Counseling is a process in which a nonjudgmental, caring, and trained therapist helps a person arrive at effective solutions to challenges or obstacles. At Transitions Therapy our mission is to provide a welcoming, safe environment where issues of sexual orientation and gender identity can be explored and discussed freely without judgment. We support the notion that helping involves facilitating an individual’s self-exploration, self-understanding, self-acceptance, and self-esteem.
