My therapist at Ardent helped me see that what I was doing with that anger was the problem. I now have the tools to live a calmer and more authentic life and I'm not afraid of conflict anymore.

LGBTQ Counseling in Chicago, Illinois & Iowa

Ardent Counseling Center is committed to helping gay, lesbian, transsexual, questioning, and bisexual individuals with their challenges and personal growth. Therapy helps with a variety of life's challenges, such as creating satisfying, meaningful, and sustaining relationships. We work together on the issues people of all sexualities face, such as depression, anxiety, and addictions, with respect for the challenges unique to sexual minorities.

Dysfunction in personal growth and problems from being a sexual minority? We can help, Call (888) 870-1775(888) 870-1775

Ardent has specialists who work with clients in the midst of rejecting, modifying or integrating their family, societal and religious beliefs with their personal experience and orientation. Many family members and friends struggle to understand how best to respond when a person "comes out" to them. In individual and family therapy, we'll work with you to create a new understanding and relationship based on truth.
