STRUTHERS, Ohio (WKBN) – A counseling clinic in Struthers is now a certified LGBT Safe Zone.

The Struthers Psycare office had a training day Friday. Employees learned how to offer acceptance and support to lesbians, gays and transgender people. Counselors say their LGBT clients often need help with complex emotional issues.

“We’re creating an open and affirming place for them to come to and talk to people and know we are a judgement free, safe place for people to come,” Psycare Trainer Jacob Telego said.

Another option for those working through LGBT issues is Sovereign Grace Chapel in Youngstown, which offers Biblical counseling.
