LGBTQ Counseling

Are You Ready to Try LGBTQ Counseling? Our Counselors Are Ready to Help You!

LGBTQ counseling is a specialized form of therapy designed to help individuals and couples who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender or queer, or are simply questioning that identity. It focuses on the specific issues and challenges that members of the LGBTQ community face in their daily lives.

LGBTQ Counseling for You

Discuss Your Feelings with Expert LGBTQ Mental Health Professionals

LGBTQ counseling provides a safe space where individuals can talk openly about their feelings without fear of judgment or stigma. This can be particularly important for those who have faced rejection or invalidation from others in the past.

Why You Should Try LGBTQ Counseling

Our LGBTQ counseling services can help you be true to who you are.

LGBTQ counseling provides a safe space for individuals who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, or queer/questioning to address their mental health issues.

Get to Know Yourself Better

Partnering with a licensed LGBTQ counselor provides individuals with access to specialized expertise and compassionate guidance through potentially difficult times. It helps foster resilience so clients can better cope with life’s challenges while promoting personal growth at the same time.

Licensed LGBTQ Therapists

We work exclusively with licensed LGBTQ counselors. For a therapist to become a licensed LGBTQ counselor, they would need to hold a degree in counseling, clinical psychology, or social work. The graduate program should have included courses that specifically focused on LGBTQ issues and affirmative therapy for this community.

Access to In-person LGBTQ Therapy

Our platform can offer intermediate access to mental health care providers in your state. Access to in-person LGBTQ therapy can vary greatly depending on the state you live in. While some states have a range of options for LGBTQ individuals seeking counseling services, others have very limited resources available.

Access to Online Counseling Sessions

We can connect you with professional counselors who provide their services online. Some people struggling with gender identity issues or coming out may prefer virtual sessions to discuss their mental health conditions in a private setting. Online counseling can be especially beneficial for those who live in areas where there are limited resources or access to LGBTQ-affirming therapists.

Safe Space for Sharing

Online LGBTQ counseling provides a safe and anonymous space where individuals can express themselves freely without fear of judgment or discrimination. Confidentiality is crucial when it comes to discussing sensitive topics such as sexual orientation, gender identity, and mental health issues.

LGBTQ counseling may be the right choice for you. If you’re feeling lost and unsure of where to turn, here are a few signs that you might benefit from LGBTQ counseling:
