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.
Whether you are suffering from OCD, social anxiety, depression, people-pleasing, existential fears, relationship concerns, fear or shame, you deserve to feel important, understood, and cared for. I am committed to showing up for you. I want to navigate these stormy waters alongside you and help you meet your true, emboldened Self.
I believe my clients are looking for a caring , knowledgeable therapist to effectively support them. They may be experiencing depression or anxiety or undergoing life transitions like being a new parent, divorce, marriage, new job, moving, parenting challenges, menopause, aging parents, illness, or new relationships. They may need to work through unresolved feelings from their upbringing with caretakers or siblings. Overall, they're looking for more creative approaches to therapy & coping.
