Frequently Asked Questions
At its core, LGBTQ therapy is about understanding and accepting the unique needs of those within the LGBTQ community. It is about creating an environment of understanding and acceptance in which gay, bisexual, queer, non-binary, and transgender people can feel comfortable discussing their thoughts, feelings, and experiences.
LGBTQ therapy is an invaluable tool for those within the community to tap into and receive the emotional, psychological, and social support they need to feel accepted and supported in a safe and secure environment.
