As someone who identifies as LGBTQIA+, you may have felt like you didn’t fit in or were different from others for as long as you can remember. You may have felt like you had to hide who you were for fear of judgment, rejection or physical harm.

But now, you’re ready to live authentically.

You’re ready to find your place in the world and live with more resolve, courage and fearlessness. You deserve to live your truth, to be seen and heard. You might wonder, “That sounds great, but how do I get there?” This is where LGBTQIA+ affirming therapy can help.


Therapy for LGBTQIA+ individuals

You deserve to live your truth, to be seen and heard.

For years, LGBTQIA+ individuals have been underserved and misunderstood by the mental health community. Some queer individuals have been subjected to so-called “conversion therapies” that attempt to change their sexual orientation or gender identity. These are more than unhelpful therapy experiences, they are discredited practices that are not only ineffective but can also be harmful.

Nearly every LGBTQIA+ individual has endured multiple microaggressions and discrimination from family, peers, religious institutions and/or society as a whole.

LGBTQIA+ affirming therapy is inclusive of all sexual orientations and gender identities. It is a safe space for you to explore your thoughts, feelings, and experiences.

LGBTQIA+ affirming therapy can help people cope with the discrimination and bigotry they have faced from family, friends, and society at large. Affirming therapy can also help people deal with the unique stressors that come with being a member of the LGBT community.

If you are LGBTQIA+ and looking for help, it can be difficult and scary to reach out for therapy. You are not alone. Please know there are LGBTQIA+ affirming therapists who are ready to support your journey.


"You deserve to be treated with respect and compassion. You deserve to be seen and heard. You deserve to be understood. You deserve to live with dignity, have acceptance from others, and feel a sense of self-acceptance."

The Mental Health Challenges
of the LGBT Community

Mental health is a major issue for the LGBTQIA+ community. According to a report by the National Alliance on Mental Illness, LGBT people are more likely than heterosexual people to experience mental health problems, including:

There are several elements that contribute to the mental health problems experienced by LGBTQIA+ people. A major factor is the experience of discrimination, prejudice and microaggressions which creates a significant source of stress.

LGBTQIA+ people are often the target of hate crimes and can face discrimination in employment, housing, and healthcare.
Another factor is the lack of social support. LGBTQIA+ people may not have the same level of support from family and friends as heterosexual people. They may even feel isolated from others in the LGBTQIA+ community.

It’s important to remember that everyone experiences mental health challenges in different ways. If you are a member of the LGBTQIA+ community, it’s important to seek out help and support if you are struggling.
