LGBTQIA+ Spiritual Recovery Group

One of the most profound struggles that individuals identifying on the LGBTQIA+ spectrums experience is that of painful incongruence between their sexuality and their spirituality.

Frequently regarded as the lepers of our time in their spiritual communities, these individuals struggle in a unique way, trying to reconcile the messages of peace, love, and non-judgment preached in their varying religious traditions, with the lived experiences of rejection, judgment, humiliation, and learned shame.

This particular group at Petrichor Counseling, LLC, meets with the specific goal of tending to these excruciating wounds.

These wounds frequently cut the deepest of all, and we provide a safe, non-judgmental, gentle space in which to explore and heal from these wounds while being simultaneously mindful and respectful of your beliefs.

Under the facilitation of our skilled sex therapist, Mari I. Mars, MS, LPC, CST, whose specialties are spirituality, sexuality, and trauma, this group mixes processing and resolving feelings with support and psycho-education to offer you the path to peace you’ve been seeking for so long.
