Are you an LGBTQIA+ individual feeling "down", anxious, or stressed? Finding it difficult to get through the day?
Are you experiencing mental health challenges, and feel that an expert ear and advice could make all the difference?
Are you seeking to transition and need a letter for HRT?
According to the National Alliance on Mental Illness, LGBTQIA+ individuals have triple the risk of developing a mental health disorder, and LGBTQIA+ youth are at four times as likely to attempt suicide. The 2017 KFF Disparities Policy report also found that LGBTQIA+ individuals experience higher levels of sexual and physical violence and substance abuse.
The stakes are high.
And you’re not alone.
Whether you’re facing issues like stigma, discrimination, shame, or rejection, or simply the challenges of everyday life, counseling is key.
I’ve been providing a safe space where LGBTQIA+ clients receive professional support and expert guidance for years. No matter what you are experiencing, we can work together toward your happier, healthier future.
Effective treatments exist for mental health issues; there are effective strategies to calm the stormy waters of life’s daily challenges. By addressing your particular issues and struggles, we’ll pave an empowering path forward.
So if you’ve experienced...
- Feelings of social isolation
- Trouble coming out
- Feelings of despair
- Physical symptoms like headaches, sweating, shakes & jumpiness, trouble concentrating, a frequent need to urinate, or stomach uneasiness
- A need to mask substance abuse like heavy alcohol or drug use, or high risk sexual activities
- Pressure to be someone other than who you feel you are
Or if you’ve often thought...
“It’s safer to stay at home.”
“I’d rather be dead.”
“I don’t matter.”
“If only my body looked like that…”
“Why don’t I feel like…?”
Then I’m relieved you are reading this. We provide not just an LGBTQIA+ Friendly environment, but AFFIRMING environment.
