LGBTQ & Gender Issues
Whatever your sexual or romantic orientation or gender identity, or issue related to your identity, our clinical team welcomes you. We note that specifically because a prime source of stress in the LGBTQ population is a sense of otherness. We offer experienced therapeutic support for your journey of discovery and healing while accepting you as a natural and rightful member of the human community. Despite growing support for the inherent right of all people to express the sexuality or gender most natural for them, discrimination, oppression and marginalization of LGBTQ people continues. Navigating that, reaching an authentic and relaxed sense of self, and coming out as who you are to your family and community are unique demands upon you. These factors leave the LGBTQ community particularly vulnerable to depression, anxiety and substance abuse. We also realize that you can face every other issue not specifically related to your sexuality or gender identity. We are well-equiped to help.
