Support for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender & Questioning/Queer (LGBTQ) Clients

Being an Affirmative therapist means providing an acceptance-filled approach and a nonjudgemental stance toward members of the LGBTQ community. An Affirmative therapist takes into account specific challenges that may emerge with this community and empowers clients in finding solutions from an inclusive, compassionate place.

If you are confronted with problems in your relationships, having difficulty in sharing your identity with family/friends, or trying to understand your own identity, therapy may be a safe place to address these issues. Having a safe and supportive atmosphere can create great healing when past experiences have left deep hurts. Some have even experienced these hurts from the helping profession itself. I recognize this, and so am mindful to cultivate a warm and accepting energy grounded in respect and empathy, regardless of how my clients identify themselves.
