LGBT COUPLES COUNSELING

We are here to change the way people view couples counseling. Couples counseling is not for the “broken,” it is for the motivated couples looking to live a better life. We are all imperfect. We all have flaws. We have all made mistakes. Our clients are tenacious individuals who refuse to give up easily and desire a relationship that is better than the rest.  

At BPC we believe that everyone should feel accepted, affirmed, and embraced for who they are. Therefore, we set out to create a place where couples within the LGBT community can feel safe to explore, heal, and grow their relationship. Cultivating fulfilling relationships is an integral part of our work at Biltmore Psychology and Counseling and our services include LGBT marriage counseling, pre-marital counseling, and counseling for partners who are dating or living together. Our counselors are fully aware of the many common and unique challenges that LGBT couples face in their relationships and within the community and sensitively create a safe place to discuss these in counseling. We are passionate about LGBT rights and acceptance, and affirmation of your relationship is built into everything that we do. 

Our psychologists and counselors often apply Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) techniques in working with couples. EFT method has been found to be effective in helping over 75% of couples in distress recover and grow even after counseling has ended. In a supportive environment, we help LGBT couples mend their relationship and assist them with finding tools to connect and love.

Teletherapy & Video Counseling Sessions Available

Biltmore Psychology and Counseling offers teletherapy sessions as a way to participate in counseling without needing to be physically present at our office.
