MARY PARRISH, LPC-S
Verified clinicians have had their licenses confirmed by our staff at the time they create their profile. We also require all verified therapists keep their licensing information up to date in order to maintain verified status.
Send your prospective therapist a brief message about why you’re seeking support, your preference for in-person or telehealth services, and how you’d like to be contacted moving forward. Note: Answers to many common questions can be found on the therapist’s profile page. If this is an emergency, please call 911 or go to your nearest hospital.
You're tired of pretending to be someone that you're not. To stay closeted, to protect your family, to avoid the weird questions about your sex life... Because you were taught that it's not okay to be lesbian, gay, bi-sexual, transgender, or queer. It feels like there is no place in this world for you. How could they accept you now? Religion depicts you as inferior or sinful. People in the family and at work say horrible things about LGBTQ people, and sometimes you feel ashamed, isolated, or guilty. Confusion and anxiety are dominating your life, but really- you just want to be accepted for who you are.
I can help. We'll work together to drop the pretense and you'll learn how to live with integrity and authenticity. I'll guide you in turning humiliation into pride and shame into self-love. You'll speak your truth, communicating your wants and needs while setting boundaries with family and friends. Let's conquer your fears & become the master of your life.
Imagine feeling confident and free to be who you really are.
Call me to schedule an appointment and set up a free 15-minute consultation. Healing happens the minute you reach out for help. I know it is hard, but you've read this far; you're almost there. Take the next step towards loving yourself & whomever you want to love. Pick up the phone, call me now.
