LGBTQ issues are multi-faceted and deserve thorough exploration within counseling to understand how they shape our understandings of self and others.
Gender identity is evolving and self-expression and ownership of who we are should be celebrated and explored in a healthy manner.

RCBT challenges thought and allows us to rewrite our future.
