Therapy for Lives Inside and Outside the Box.

Laura A. Jacobs, LCSW-R: Psychotherapist, Activist, Author, Presenter... Heretic*

I believe we all can live rewarding, empowered lives.

Straight, gay, lesbian, bisexual, queer, pansexual, asexual, trans*, transgender, transsexual, genderqueer, gender nonconforming, kinky, BDSM, vanilla, monogamous, single, polyamorous… regardless of our lifestyle, our identity, or our background, we all have struggles.  We all have suffered from past trauma.  We all have difficult relationships.  We all seek happiness.

Life is not about finding yourself... it’s about creating yourself.
— G. B. Shaw

Therapy can be a difficult process of both exploring the past and creating the future.  I seek to establish a comfortable environment in which we can work together, safely asking questions and making empowered decisions about to move forward, while simultaneously investigating questions of meaning.

Experienced with individuals, families, and couples, LGBTQ and alternate lifestyles, artistic professionals, sexuality, HIV/AIDS, grief and bereavement, addiction, and more, as well as in issues of marginalization and otherness, I am happy to work with people from adolescents to the elderly, of all orientations and expressions.

Let's collaborate to create the richest, happiest life for you possible.
