Lance Lary, MA, LAC, NCC
He, Him, His
Lance provides individual and group counseling in an LGBTQ+ affirmative environment. He says “I treat LGBTQ+ clients with respect and dignity and affirm that they are just fine the way they are.” As a member of the community Lance can empathize with navigating the daily struggles as an LGBTQ+ person.
Lance has worked with individuals across the life-span (children to adults) to solidify a healthier self-identity. He has assisted clients with anxiety, depression, self-esteem/self-image/body image, communication, motivation and relationship issues. Lance has experience helping individuals diagnosed with Autism spectrum disorder explore their gender identity in both individual and group settings.
Lance uses a combination of theoretical orientations to assist clients but does focus on a client-centered approach. He believes that success in therapy comes from the client taking an active role in their own treatment. Through this approach a client should be able to help with their own growth and development, reduce their distressful feelings, increase their openness to new experiences, and build self-esteem. His goal is for clients to positively define themselves and to ultimately embrace themselves as the special and unique individual they are.
Outside of the office you’ll find Lance hiking, playing with his rescue dogs and cheering for The University of Alabama football team. Roll Tide!
