Online Therapy for LGBTQ2IA+ Community
We live in a world in which political, economic, health, cultural, religious, and social systems privilege and/or oppress the lived experiences of individuals and communities. Acknowledging and understanding these systems and the barriers that they create is critical for shifting shame away from those experiencing the impacts. Unfortunately, members of the LGBTQ2IA+ community are too often forced to navigate challenges resulting from these broader systems such as discrimination, stigmatization, and invalidation. These challenges can result in LGBTQ2IA+ folks experiencing increased mental health concerns, such as depression, anxiety, self-harm, and suicidality. This can be compounded by other marginalized aspects of one’s identity like race, culture, ability, and socioeconomic status.
Therapy can provide an inclusive and collaborative space to explore concerns related to your experiences as part of the LGBTQ2IA+ community. Some common areas brought to therapy include gender identity and expression, sexual and romantic attraction and relationships, experiences of transitioning and coming out, and navigating relationships with family, partners, friends, and colleagues. We never assume that the reasons for seeking therapy are related to these issues and work from a collaborative stance to understand and work towards your specific goals.
In working with individuals, couples, and families, we strive to create a safe space in which your unique experiences can be explored. In session, you may work towards acknowledging and challenging broader injustices by holding space for the wounds they have created and encounter opportunities to explore your strength and resiliency. We strive to co-create a space to center your authentic experiences while recognizing the importance of social support through healthy relationships and safe community spaces.
