Prism Counseling & Coaching provides fully-affirming pastoral counseling, coaching, and spiritual direction for those in the LGBTQ+ community. We provide services for LGBTQ+ adults, teens, and couples dealing with various emotional, relational, and spiritual issues.
Faith and Sexuality
The topic of sexual orientation and gender identity can be a hot topic in many churches and faith communities. Not only that, but many people who struggle in these areas often feel alone and confused when they are surrounded by others who don't understand their experience. For this reason, our counselors specialize in providing spiritual insight and wisdom for those who are struggling to reconcile their sexual and faith identities and are looking for support.
Our goal is to help clients find congruence with their faith and sexuality, understanding that clients come from various theological backgrounds, and have different perspectives on how that affects their faith and personal future. We help people find peace with who they are and help them reconcile that with their own faith and spirituality. We do not and will not offer any type of counseling that seeks to change a person's sexual orientation or gender identity.
Providers Who Work with LGBTQ+ Clients
Prism Counseling & Coaching does not provide, promote, or endorse conversion therapy.
Conversion therapy refers to any attempt to change a person's sexual orientation or identity, whether through psychotherapy, pastoral counseling, or support group programs. We are strongly opposed to these approaches as conversion therapy is unethical and dangerous. We also cannot and will not refer anyone to an outside provider offering this type of service.
Conversion therapy is illegal in the state of Arizona (as well as many other states) yet may still go by various other names or "brands" including: reparative therapy, ex-gay therapy, same-sex attraction therapy, sexual orientation change efforts (SOCE), sexual attraction fluidity exploration in therapy (SAFE-T), or Reintegrative Therapy. Some will even assert to not be conversion therapy — but any attempt to change a person's sexual orientation or identity (or a promise that change will occur, either directly or as a byproduct) is considered unethical by every major medical association in America.
