Counseling Services > Same-sex Couples


Relationships are an important part of all our lives, and they are an important source of happiness and fulfillment. At the same time, relationships may be difficult, and can cause anxiety and unhappiness. Same-sex relationships are often not supported by society, and sometimes face distinctive problems. Relationship counseling is focused on helping both of you identify the parts of your relationship that are causing distress, how social and familial pressures may exacerbate those problems, and determining how each of you can change the relationship dynamic in order to decrease stress and increase relationship satisfaction. It is important to choose a relationship therapist who is accepting and understanding of the unique problems facing same-sex relationships. All therapists at Aspen Grove Counseling are LGBT accepting and knowledgable.

Common relationship issues include communication difficulties, extended family acceptance, infidelity, couple sexuality problems, and finances. By exploring the couple dynamic, you can define how you want to move forward in your relationship with clear goals and objectives. Increased understanding of your partner will bring emotional closeness and connection.
