It can be especially difficult to find a therapist as a member of the LGBTQ+ community because of an added layer of fearing rejection based on who you intrinsically are. The community has experienced so much rejection over the years, and while things have improved, our culture has so far to go to be inclusive and accepting. When working with me, you can feel secure and accepted for you are.
It is an important distinction to me that I am LGBTQ+ affirming, not only accepting. I recognize that your gender identity and sexual orientation are a part of who you are, and I also recognize you are more than only your identity. Feel open to discuss as much or as little of this as part of our work together. Therapy should be about what you want it to be about.
For parents of LGBTQ+ children and teens, it can often be difficult to know how to help affirm your child’s identity. I work from a place of helping your child learn to integrate their gender identity and sexual orientation into part of who they are.
I can also provide support on how to approach these issues with those who are less supportive of your child.
