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.
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
