LGBTQ Concerns

If you are lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, or queer-identifying, you may experience emotional challenges and safety concerns that others can't fully imagine.

That's because being part of the LGBTQ community requires dealing with

  • a sense of separateness and isolation

  • the stress associated with stigma and prejudice 

  • the fear of family and societal rejection 

  • living with religious and political discrimination 

  • struggles with self-acceptance and self-worth 

  • the complexities of sexuality and sexual orientation 

  • complexities self-discovery 

  • being true to one's self

These concerns can complicate relationship conflicts and infidelity, heighten anxious moments, and deepen depression. But there is something you can do to change the lived quality of your everyday life.

Counseling sessions using existential psychology and relational psychotherapy for LGBTQ concerns can help you navigate these stresses and the people in your life with confidence, grace, and personal satisfaction.

Seeking assistance from a compassionate, nonjudgmental professional is a good first step in healing the wounds of a difficult childhood, relationship break-ups and friendship break-downs, and the ignorance and hurt too often encountered at work and in the social sphere.

Although I'm not a specialist in assisting individuals through transgender transitions, I do work with the Trans community after your successfully completed gender transition and/or confirmation surgery, to facilitate personal and social adjustment to gender change.

I can relate to what you are going through.
