  • Affirmative Care for the LGBTQIA+ Community

    For LGBTQIA+ individuals, trauma, discrimination, and minority based stress are primary reasons for entering therapy. Such stressors may lead to anxiety, depression, relationship issues, self-esteem, or other issues. 

    Regardless of the reasons, someone from the community might seek therapy, it is important that their therapist will be accepting, knowledgeable, skilled, and supportive.

    What is LGBTQIA+ Affirmative Care?

    LGBTQIA + Affirmative Care was developed to address the unique emotional and mental health needs of members of the LGBTQIA+ community. Therapists who offer affirmative care provide their LGBTQIA + clients a safe space to develop a healthy sense of self and strengthen their voice.
