Hi, I'm Heather! I believe everyone deserves to feel heard + seen. You matter and there is space for you here.
Just like any other group, the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer and questioning (LGBTQ) community faces mental health issues and unique challenges. However, LGBTQ individuals are almost 3 times more likely than others to experience a mental health condition, such as depression or anxiety. Additionally, more than half of individuals who identify as transgender experience depression or anxiety. The LGBTQ community is also at a higher risk for suicide. Young people are even more at risk, as they may experience a lack of support at home and fear, hatred or prejudice in school. If you are a member of the LGBTQ community and are facing mental health challenges, you don’t have to suffer in silence. Reach out to one of TherapyDen’s LGBTQ experts and get help today.
My passion is working with transgender, nonbinary, and intersex people, and the people who love them, whether or not gender identity is a topic of exploration. My clients are likely to be involved in relationship models and communities not sanctioned by Those Who Judge, and they often have a strong drive toward creative expression in its many forms. Neurodivergent and Highly Sensitive people report feeling welcome, safe, and seen.
