Understanding the mental health challenges faced by individuals within the LGBTQIA+ community is crucial, especially considering the additional burden of societal stigma and discrimination.

At our practice, we are dedicated to providing comprehensive mental health support that addresses a wide range of issues commonly experienced within the community. We offer assistance in areas such as:

  • Life Stress: Navigating life stressors can be particularly challenging for LGBTQIA+ individuals. Our therapists provide support and coping strategies to help you manage stress related to work, relationships, family dynamics, and other life events.
  • Family Support: We recognize the significance of family support for mental well-being. However, not all LGBTQIA+ individuals have access to this support. Our therapists offer a compassionate space to explore feelings of rejection or lack of acceptance from family members and work with you to build a supportive network that affirms your identity and experiences.
  • Depression and Anxiety: Depression and anxiety are common mental health concerns within the LGBTQIA+ community, often stemming from experiences of discrimination, social rejection, or internalized stigma. Our therapists offer evidence-based therapies to help alleviate symptoms and improve overall well-being.
  • Feelings of Isolation: Feelings of isolation and loneliness can be prevalent among LGBTQIA+ individuals, especially for those who may not have access to affirming social networks. We provide a supportive environment where you can connect with others who understand and validate your experiences, fostering a sense of belonging and community.
  • Gender-Affirming Care: Our practice understands the importance of access to gender-affirming care. We offer various levels of support for youth and adults who are exploring their gender identity, including clinicians trained to provide letters of readiness for medical transition needs. We provide a safe space for trans and nonbinary individuals and celebrate your authentic expression. Our counselors can assist individuals of all ages with depression, anxiety, relationships, parenting, intimacy and sexual expression, gender and sexual identity, gender transition, letters of readiness for medical transition, LGBTQIA+ youth services, family counseling, trauma, and other concerns that impact quality of life.

Building Community Through Queer-Affirming Clinicians

We believe that fostering a sense of community is essential for the mental health and well-being of LGBTQIA+ individuals. That’s why our queer-affirming team of clinicians are not only highly skilled therapists and dedicated allies, but some are also members of the LGBTQIA+ community themselves.

We understand the importance of representation and strive to create a space where you can feel seen, heard, and understood. Our queer-affirming clinicians offer:

  • Personal Understanding: Several of our clinicians bring a personal understanding of LGBTQIA+ experiences to their practice. Some have navigated their own journeys of self-discovery, identity affirmation, and resilience, and they are here to support you through yours.
  • Cultural Competence: LGBTQIA+ identities are diverse and complex, encompassing a wide range of experiences and backgrounds. Our clinicians are culturally competent and sensitive to the unique needs and challenges faced by individuals across the spectrum of gender and sexual identities.
  • Affirming Environment: We prioritize creating an affirming environment where you can be your authentic self without fear of judgment or discrimination. Our clinicians celebrate the rich tapestry of LGBTQIA+ identities and relationships, and they are committed to providing inclusive and affirming care to all clients.
  • Collaborative Care: We believe in the power of community collaboration in promoting mental health and well-being. Our clinicians work collaboratively with other LGBTQIA+-affirming organizations and healthcare providers to ensure that you have access to a comprehensive network of support services.
