GLOW (Gays and Lesbians Out and Well) is psychotherapy and counseling with a gay-affirming focus for the Denver, Colorado, LGBT community.
GLOW specializes in helping Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, and Transgender (GLBT) persons come out and grow emotionally, psychologically and spiritually. GLOW’s gay counseling is based on the premise that sexuality, creativity, and spirituality are intertwined and dependent on the affirmation of an authentic self-identity. Our work is informed by a philosophy that seeks equality and mental health and wholeness for all people.
GLOW is a gay mental health program dedicated to providing counseling services to Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender (LGBT) individuals, couples, and families, and current or retired Gay and Lesbian military personnel/soldiers, of diverse cultural, ethnic, racial, and faith communities. We offer individual therapy, gay couples and relationship counseling, support groups, EMDR, addiction intervention, as well as gay-focused sex therapy on a variety of GLBT sexuality issues and gay sexual health.
