K.A.D. Counseling, LLC provides safe, ethical, affirming, and supportive services to all LGBTQIA+ clients.

Conversion therapy for minors is banned in both the cities of Allentown and Bethlehem.

Conversion therapy is a harmful and unethical practice that seeks to change an individual’s sexual orientation or gender identity, including efforts to change behaviors or gender expressions or to reduce or eliminate sexual or romantic attractions or feelings toward individuals of the same gender.

The City of Allentown passed Article 15382 in 2017 and the City of Bethlehem passed Article 1122 in 2018. These Appropriate Mental Health Services ordinances are to protect the physical and psychological well-being of minors, including lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and questioning youth caused by conversion therapy. Both Articles prohibit mental health providers from engaging in conversion therapy with a minor.

Any complaints regarding the use of conversion therapy with minors should be forwarded to the city health director:

  • Bethlehem Health Director 610-865-7083
  • Allentown Health Director 610-437-7708
