If you identify as LGBTQ finding a safe space is important.

 

Whether you’re struggling with your sexual or gender identity or simply looking for a therapist with experience helping the LGBTQ community, we are here to help you!

Some common challenges that we can help with include:

  • Relationship and dating issues

  • Self-esteem

  • Sexual and gender identity

  • Coming out

  • Shame

  • Dealing with shame surrounding your identity

  • Internalized homophobia and transphobia

  • Addiction and substance use

  • Intimacy issues

  • Sexual compulsion

  • Living with HIV/AIDS

  • Depression

  • Anxiety

  • Other emotional struggles

For some individuals, sexual orientation and identity issues may be the reason for depression, anxiety and other emotional stressors. We will be sure to address this in our work together. Others may wish to focus on other issues, such as trauma, but still work with an understanding, nonjudgmental therapist.

We use an affirmative, empathic approach that helps people of all backgrounds understand how stigmatizing and marginalizing experiences shape the ways that they feel about themselves and others. Often, recognizing these experiences can be an emotional process.

If you’re considering LGBTQ therapy and want to speak with someone who is compassionate, sensitive and understanding of the specific issues affecting the community, then LGBT counseling may be for you.

Whether or not the support you need is related to gender or sexual identity, it’s often easier to connect with a LGBT-friendly therapist.
