Conversations between a couple about a significant life change, serious relationship problems, or pre-marital counseling to determine compatibility can all be facilitated with the help of an LGBTQ couples therapist Reston, VA.

Regardless of your gender identity, sexual preference, or identification, we’re here to help you work through your relationship issues and develop healthy conversation and coping skills. As your Lindsey Hoskins & Associates, we provide a safe environment for you to be who you are.
Unique Benefits Of An LGBTQ Couples Therapist Reston, VA
We meet you where you are and help you develop a plan of where you’re going. Many LGBTQ couples worry about having to educate their therapist about the unique challenges they face before they can even begin the work of therapy. When you work with one of our specially trained counselors, you can feel more at ease. We know where you’re coming from and are open and understanding of your unique experiences.
LGBTQ therapists understand marginalization and oppression, but we’re careful not to make assumptions about the actual experiences you and your partner have. We listen, guide, and offer insight into your and your partner’s motivations with the intent of helping you work through sources of contention and disputes.
Hope, Help, And Healing
The goal of couples therapy is to improve your relationship. Sometimes, you need help communicating and listening to one another. Other times, it may feel like the “spark” is gone, and you don’t know how to reconnect. Couples seek therapy for a variety of reasons, and in our practice, we address these issues and those unique to the LGBTQ community.
An LGBTQ couples therapist can help you and your partner establish healthy personal boundaries and healthy boundaries as a couple. If you have children, we can help you work through changes in your relationship now that you are parents. Perhaps therapy is your last-ditch effort to mend your relationship. Your therapist can give you and your partner strategies to reconnect or, if you realize that splitting is best, work through an amicable dissolution of your relationship.
We also deal with more serious issues, like infidelity or other relationship betrayals. These serious issues may destroy your relationship with the person you love, although we believe that couples committed to healing and recovery can benefit from the work of couples therapy.
Therapy from a professional LGBTQ couples therapist can help you and your partner feel more comfortable sharing yourselves at your most vulnerable. At Lindsey Hoskins & Associates, we offer personalized therapy services for couples, as well as individual therapy, to complement the work you both are doing in couples therapy.
