Affirmative Therapy

Affirmative care is an approach to treatment that “addresses the negative influences of homophobia, transphobia, and heterosexism” while also embracing a positive view of LGBTQ+ identities (Rock, Carlson, & McGeorge, 2010). Affirmative therapy is much more than good intentions, it is an empowerment-based stance that addresses societal stressors while focusing on positive identity development.

Dr. Lange is a published author on this culturally inclusive approach, which is designed to address a range of common concerns among LGBTQ+ clients.
