About The Founder
Jake Myers is the founder and CEO of LGBTQ Therapy Space, the first LGBTQ-owned and operated online therapy platform designed for LGBTQ+ clients. A Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist who started the business when his own practice moved online, Myers is dedicated to providing an affirmative and welcoming space for LGBTQ+ individuals and couples to navigate life’s challenges. He graduated from Boston College with a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology, and completed grad school at Antioch University Los Angeles with a master’s degree in clinical psychology (with a specialization in LGBT Affirmative Psychotherapy). Myers writes a regular advice column, “Ask Jake,” for Queerty.com, in addition to other mental-health related articles, and appears on various podcasts.
Jake started his own journey towards mental health and recovery by seeing a gay therapist at the Los Angeles LGBT Center, and having a safe space to be fully seen and accepted by another LGBTQ person ignited his passion for eventually giving back to his own LGBTQ clients. Now relocating back to Southern California, he has a private tele-health practice in California and Florida, in addition to facilitating affirmative therapy for hundreds of clients through LGBTQ Therapy Space.
