Dr. Stephen Oreski & Associates
We provide a wide range of mental health services specifically tailored to the LGBTQ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender) communities. In addition, all our services, whether individual, couple, or group counseling, focus on the unique aspects of growing up and living as a sexual or gender minority.We use an affirmative, empathic approach that helps people of all backgrounds understand how stigmatizing and marginalizing experiences shape the ways that they feel about themselves and others. We recognize these experiences can be an emotional process and offer a supportive and safe environment tailored to our community.Our licensed LGBTQ therapists have specialized training and the experience necessary to help you along the way.Please contact us and we can discuss your individual needs.
