Rainbow Counseling Services provide quality mental health counseling and case management support to members of the LGBTQ community and their families, and to those who are questioning their sexual and/or gender identity.
We aspire to provide services in an atmosphere of empowerment and acceptance.
Due to the experiences of rejection and discrimination encountered by LGBTQ individuals, forming a positive identity can be challenging. Coming out can be a time when extra support is needed. There are often many family issues that come up at this time. RCC counselors and case managers can offer a help-ing hand when it is most needed.
We provide specific clinic and school-based services to support LGBTQ youth and their families. We strive to provide services that help to promote family acceptance, bring families together and improve their ability to communicate effectively.
