LGBTQ-Affirming Therapy at Creative Care
At Creative Care, we recognize the culture of LGBTQ clients as integral to treatment planning and action. Moreover, the acceptance of LGBTQ as worthy of the highest level of care is innate to our mission: to create bridges and tear down walls. The walls that told these individuals that their sexual identity was subversive, rendering life a struggle. And addiction, a solution. The bridges to show the same people that there is another way.
At Creative Care, we recognize that traditionalapproaches to psychotherapy have not always catered to the needs of this community. But here, we know better. With compassion, we will devise a strategy that incorporates all facets of the client’s sexual identity into treatment. On these grounds, we say that Creative Care prioritizes inclusivity and safety for all. As per this orientation, we encourage all clients to express themselves and trust the validation that will come in return. We know that this is an exchange that might take some time to develop, but our clinicians and the full Creative Care team is prepared to go the distance with every client.
In addition, our group programming includes LGBTQ groups that will allow for individuals to share their struggles with others that might wear the same scars. While their concerns or experience within the community might vastly differ from their peers, they can all rely on the validation and affirmation for their life’s story within the walls of our home. Proudly at Creative Care, we also have clinicians that have taken the extra steps to become LGBTQ-affirming certified therapists.
