Learning that your child is gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, questioning (LGBTQ) or struggling with unwanted same-sex attractions (SSA) can be frightening and confusing for parents and families.
These are all questions that parents struggle with, and there are no easy answers. But there is hope, and there are solutions! There are specific ways to help your loved ones heal, fulfill their potential, and restore your family!
Parents are frequently confused and upset when they learn about the struggles their child has. Fill out the form on this page to ask a question, or click below to register for one of our retreats or our parenting class.
Join Christopher Doyle, MA, LPC, LCPC, husband and father of five, and the Executive Director of the Institute for Healthy Families as he guides parents in a yearlong class of learning, growing, processing, and healing together.
This year-long course offers practical advice on how to increase love and understanding between you and your child, and what you can do to help yourself, marriage, children, and family grow. By following and implementing the strategies offered in this course, families have been healed and relationships restored.
Each month, we will discuss one redemptive principle for family healing. Parents will be given homework and concrete action steps to work on for family healing each month.
Listening to other parents and meeting new friends who shared a common struggle was healing for me and my wife, and eventually our entire family. We thought we had been alone and that our problems were unique, but the class showed us really practical ways of making postive connections with each other. We cannot thank you enough!
