LGBTQIA+ Affirming

Rainbow Flags

While belonging to the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Questioning or Queer (LGBTQ+) community can be a source of strength, it also brings unique challenges.

LGBTQIA+ Community Mental Health

From childhood to adulthood, individuals in the LGBTQIA+ community may experience feelings of isolation, anxiety, and depression as they navigate their sexual orientation and gender identity. 

Culturally competent therapists can create safe and accepting spaces where LGBTQIA+ individuals can:

 

  • Explore sexual orientation and gender identity and accept authentic self-identity.

  • Recognizes the intersecting identities (e.g., race, ethnicity, culture) of LGBTQIA+ individuals

  • Helps individuals navigate the process of coming out.

  • Break the internalized shame.

  • Addresses the unique traumatic experienced by LGBTQIA+ individuals

  • Build resilience from stress, depression, anxiety, and other mental health issues related to identity.
