Sexual identity is an important, yet often overlooked stage of development for each of us. Oftentimes we are in families, cultures, and faith-traditions that might expect us to be a certain way, which can wreak havoc on us if we don’t identify with their way of being.
Therapists Elizabeth McCormack and Bridgette Allen enjoy working with clients who may be struggling with their sexual identity, or family members who are struggling with a loved one’s sexual identity, especially when strong religious or cultural beliefs are involved. They are both especially gifted at working with clients where their religious upbringing is unaccepting or condemns who they are, and insists on them changing or being different than who they feel they really are.
Elizabeth’s and Bridgette’s mindfulness-based approach to religious and spiritual matters is also informed by their own faith traditions and experiences in faith communities.
Elizabeth graduated from the Presbyterian Theological Seminary with her Masters in both Divinity and Marriage and Family Therapy. She is also married to a Presbyterian Minister.
Bridgette worked at Southeast Christian while in graduate school and has experience with the LDS community.
Both Elizabeth and Bridgette are a wealth of knowledge and wisdom for clients with a specific religious background as well as clients who have no religious leanings. They are open-minded and accepting of all people.
