Serving Western MA, Springfield, Northampton and Amherst, MA, Brattleboro, VT, and the Pioneer Valley, with telephone counseling, nation-wide, LifeCourse Counseling Center, and all its therapists, affirm all sexual orientations and gender identities, and celebrate the rich diversity that exists among people of all ethnic, racial and class backgrounds.

LifeCourse Counseling Center was established in 1980 and provides LGBTQI people therapy, counseling, psychotherapy, consultation and education throughout the Pioneer Valley of Western Mass and telephone and video therapy nation-wide. LifeCourse Counseling Center is based in Northampton, MA, serving Springfield, Brattleboro Vermont, Greenfield, Amherst and surrounding areas.

Our intention has always been to provide access to knowledgeable LGBTQ therapists and a safe environment where diverse sexual orientations and gender identities are seen as healthy and normal. Someone coming to LifeCourse Counseling Center has always been assured that they will see a LGBTQ therapist who intimately knows the personal issues our community faces.

We also provide consultation, education, workshops and conferences (see some of our accomplishments) and work with other community organizations, helping increase mutual respect and understanding.

Our Director and Senior Therapist Tetty Gorfine has over 30 years experience in the field.   It is her vision and leadership that has helped make LifeCourse a cornerstone of the GLBTQA community of Western Mass.

As the years have passed, we have grown with our community. We have proudly embraced transgender and non binary people among the populations we serve. We are grateful to both transgender and gender queer people as they help us all broaden our identities and the limitless possibilities of who are.

More recently, we have incorporated video and telephone counseling and consultation to our services, increasing accessibility.  Professionally trained licensed therapists provide these  therapy services.  This form of therapy  may be a necessary or preferable form of communication for people in various situations.

LifeCourse Counseling Center affirms all sexual orientations and gender identities and celebrates the rich diversity that exists among people of all ethnic, racial and class backgrounds.
