LGBTQ-Affirming Therapy

At first glance, therapy for someone who identifies as LGBTQ is the same as for someone who does not. We are all susceptible to anxieties, stressors, depression, family tension, and other emotional and mental health concerns that are sometimes a part of simply being human. However, many members of the LGBTQ community experience an additional layer of challenges related to their gender and sexual orientation. Some of these challenges include questioning and exploring our identities, dealing with rejection by our families or communities, and managing the stress that can be caused by oppression, discrimination, and isolation.

Being a member of the LGBTQ community can be an important facet of one’s identity, and one that your therapist must fully understand to be effective in supporting you.

LGBTQ-Affirming Individual Therapy

Issues addressed in therapy could include:

Support for individuals questioning and exploring their sexual identity

Care for individuals in the “coming out” process

Transition-related support: support in exploring options, making decisions, and venturing forward

Coping with familial or community rejection due to one’s sexual or gender identity

Support for parents of LGBTQ children: A safe space to process concerns, hopes, and fears and explore ways to affirm their child

Healing work for trauma survivors who are part of the LGBTQ community
