Supporting Alternative Communities in Mental Health Services
presented by Cody Glover, LPC, LCDC, CCTP-II
Alternative communities have higher incidences of mental health challenges per capita, and often meet more challenges to obtaining client informed treatment. I specialize in open, non-monogamous relationships such as polyamory and swinging, alternative lifestyles such as kink / BDSM, LGBT+, and secular or alternative faiths such as paganism. Coming into alternative worlds, I saw people go to amazing therapists who just didn’t understand. I watched friends spend the first few sessions teaching very experienced counselors the vocabulary of their lifestyles. I’ve been in private practice since 12/2018, have two master’s degrees; Educational Leadership and Clinical Mental Health Counseling for which I hold multiple licenses.
