LGBTQ Services

At West Bergen, we are deeply committed to serving the LGBTQ community and are pleased to have formed the Rainbow Resource Group as a specialty program. Our team of highly qualified, caring therapists have been selected because of their specific work with LGBTQ individuals, families and understanding of LGBTQ relationships. We also provide understanding, support and counseling for relationships that are consensually non-monogamous. West Bergen has a deep commitment to human rights and a respect and willingness to explore the gender spectrum as part of a healthy life journey. Our goal is to work together with our clients in a safe and accepting environment that promotes solutions and gives guidance towards living a more satisfying and fulfilling life.

In addition to providing counseling for problems such as anxiety, depression, relationship issues and stress, we also help clients focus specifically on LGBTQ issues such as:

  • Internalized homophobia and shame
  • Body dysmorphia
  • Social dysmorphia
  • Self-compassion
  • Family therapy designed to assist families with the process of understanding and connecting with their LGBTQ member
  • LGBTQ affirmative psychotherapy with specific sensitivity to all types of transitions, gender expression and self-identity
  • Consensually non-monogamous relationships

Members of the West Bergen team are available to community groups, houses of worship, corporations and the wider community to educate and speak on many topics related to the LGBTQ community
