An affirming approach to therapy helps you to feel heard, seen, and validated.

You can understand and accept who you are with self-compassion.

When you feel safe in your environment and in your body, you can be open and vulnerable.

It is possible to feel genuine belonging and embrace your unique identities when you show up as your authentic self.

What if you could...

  • feel supported

  • love yourself

  • cope with stress

  • be empowered

  • build social support

The best therapists don't try to change you.


Affirming therapists celebrate diversity and customize their approach to provide the support you need.


We will honor and respect you and your diversity, preferences, and goals.

Affirmative therapy can address any concerns you have, even unrelated to your gender or sexuality. 


Affirming counsellors are sensitive to social impacts and challenge societal norms and assumptions.

If you struggle with your own identities, therapy can support you to reconcile confusing beliefs.

When you move at your own pace without external pressure, you can build a safe space for exploration and self-discovery.

Affirming therapy is good for everyone. By providing acceptance, support, and understanding, therapists create a place where all people can grow and heal.
