Empowering Your Journey to Wellness

Why Therapy?

Are you feeling overwhelmed or challenged by what life has thrown your way? 

Are you experiencing persistent feelings of anxiety, grief, sadness, or just feeling generally “down”?

If you’re unsure how to navigate through these feelings on your own, individual therapy can provide the support you need to achieve clarity, strength, and healing. Individual therapy offers a personalized approach to mental health care tailored to your needs, both therapeutically and according to your schedule.

Sessions are designed to provide a safe and confidential space where you can explore your thoughts, feelings, and behaviors without judgment. At Longboat Counseling, we believe in a client-centered approach where your experiences and perspectives are validated, valued, and respected.

Why Affirming Therapy

Affirming therapy is a therapeutic approach that provides a supportive, inclusive, and non-judgmental space for individuals of all sexual orientations, gender identities, and expressions. Affirming therapy recognizes the unique challenges of individuals, including societal stigma, discrimination, and internalized homophobia. By focusing on the strengths and resilience of the individual, affirming therapy seeks to empower clients, validating their experiences and fostering a positive sense of self and identity.

An essential component of affirming therapy is its emphasis on understanding and addressing the specific needs of LGBTQIA+ clients. Our therapists are trained in this approach are not only sensitive to the nuances of gender and sexual identity but also actively work to dismantle the negative impacts of prejudice and bias. They employ strategies that affirm clients’ identities, promote self-acceptance, and encourage exploration of personal values and beliefs in a safe environment. This approach helps clients navigate their relationships, work-life, and personal growth with confidence and authenticity.

Moreover, affirming therapy extends beyond individual therapy to include support for couples and families within the LGBTQIA+ community. It offers a framework for addressing issues related to coming out, transitioning, relationship dynamics, and parenting, among others. By reinforcing positive relationships and communication, affirming therapy plays a crucial role in building supportive networks and fostering a sense of belonging. Ultimately, it aims to enhance the overall mental health and well-being of LGBTQIA+ individuals by embracing their identity and advocating for a more inclusive society.

About Our Practice

Hi, I’m Romina, a Registered Mental Health Counselor and the owner of Longboat Counseling Services. My team and I are dedicated to supporting you on your mental health journey.

Together, we will explore the different aspects of your life, understanding how they interconnect and impact your mental health. This exploration is crucial for identifying the root causes of your struggles rather than just addressing the symptoms. Often, anxiety, depression, and relationship issues can arise from experiences and events that are not immediately clear. This is where we come in.

We are trained in a variety of techniques, including CBT (cognitive-behavioral therapy), mindfulness, psychodynamic therapy, among others. You are unique, and your treatment needs to be personalized for you.

Our goal is to empower you to understand and manage your mental health better. We will work collaboratively to develop coping strategies and skills that enable you to achieve long-term well-being. We also aim to equip you with the tools to identify and tackle potential future challenges with your newfound knowledge and understanding.

We understand that taking the first step towards therapy can be daunting, but reaching out for help is a sign of strength. Contact us today to begin your journey towards healing, growth, and positive change. Our compassionate team is ready to walk with you toward a brighter, healthier future.
