Why should you consider therapy at the LightHouse?
Well, first, because we’ve hired one of the best practitioners in the field. And also because in some instances working with a therapist who deeply understands blindness and low vision can yield quicker and stronger results than working with practitioners unfamiliar with what our community experiences every day. Whether reaching your life goals requires a short or a long-term approach, the LightHouse is uniquely positioned to respond with expertise and sensitivity.
We now offer counseling, psychotherapy and consultation for people of all ages who are blind or visually impaired and/or their family members. Individual, couples, family and group services can help to promote healthier emotional development, social participation and the ability to talk about and understand feelings, in a safe, confidential setting.
