Do you feel like you your thoughts are jumbled or you have no one to talk to? I'm here to help.
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.
Being human is often tough. Sometimes we lose our way and can feel stuck and overwhelmed. Sometimes we would like to change parts of our lives or ourselves but don’t know how. Therapy can be an empowering way to promote healing, growth, and wellness. Often, we initially seek treatment to address a specific concern and then begin to uncover other areas of our lives in which we want to make meaningful change. My goal is for this process to feel supportive, affirming, and appropriately challenging.
With my therapeutic lens, I see the best in my clients. I see their strengths and where they are working to improve. I do my best to understand where they are coming from and meet them where they are. So when we have sessions together, know that you are getting someone who is on your side. Even in family or couples sessions, no one is the bad guy. The problem is the bad guy. We work as a team. We are all allies in tackling this conflict that is making you feel disconnected and frustrated.
