Do you identify as Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, Questioning, Intersex or Asexual (LGBTQIA)?
If you’re considering therapy and want to speak with someone who is compassionate, sensitive and understanding of the specific issues affecting the LGBTQ community, then LGBT counseling may be for you.
Whether or not the support you need is related to gender or sexual identity, it’s often easier to connect with a queer-identified or LGBT-friendly therapist.
What’s Different About LGBT Counseling?
The world has come a long way in the past few decades but we still have a long way to go. While same sex marriages have been legalized in the US, many forms of legal discrimination persist. There still exists a culture of discrimination, oppression, fear and resistance towards the LGBTQIA community.
For some, this environment makes it difficult to maintain an authentic sense of self: especially in the face of social expectations and pressures. For others, the social stigma of living as a minority can be a source of stress or anxiety.
LGBT counseling can help.
MEET OUR STAFF OF LGBT-FRIENDLY COUNSELORS
I absolutely love Well Clinic! From the beginning, my husband and I felt like we were in a comfortable and safe space.
Our couple’s therapy bridged gaps in our relationship and helped us understand each other that much more.
Well Clinic is an oasis, especially for busy professionals like me.
It’s a relaxing and safe space, nothing like the stuffy or drab offices you’d expect when going to a therapist.
Well Clinic’s inviting and professional design makes me feel comfortable and at ease, which probably benefits the work I am doing.
In fact, it doesn’t really feel like a therapy clinic at all, which I find awesome.
