Seeing an LGBTQ-affirming therapist can change your life
Counseling has helped thousands of people worldwide who identify as LGBTQ+ by providing an affirming space where they can be kind to themselves and explore where they are in their life journey.
Live a life that’s more authentic to who you are.
LGBTQ+ people experience mental health issues like depression or anxiety three times as often as the rest of the population.
Additionally, when identifying as LGBTQ+ it can be challenging to find affirming and supportive healthcare or emotional support providers.
People who identify as LGBTQ+ seek therapy for a variety of reasons:
- Discrimination or marginalization
- Coming out to family and friends
- Lack of sense of “self.”
- Increased risk of suicide-ideation and self-harm
- Issues with relationships and dating
- Living with HIV/AIDS
- Sexual/gender identity
- Substance abuse or addictions
- Intimacy issues
- Dealing with shame
