Are you feeling like your family just can’t understand what you’re going through?
Have you faced discrimination for being within the LGBTQ+ community that have lead to feelings of social rejection or depression?
Would you feel more comfortable talking with a therapist within the LGBTQ+ community?
Research suggests that those within the LGTBQ+ community experience higher rates of bullying, face microaggressions and microinvalidations, and are more likely to experience symptoms of anxiety and depression. Therapy is a mode of connecting with someone else to process these stigmas and discrimiations, and finding a community and strategies to better cope with the feelings you may be experiencing. If you are within the LGBTQ+ community and feel like “no one understands” and you have “nowhere to go,” find comfort that we are here to support you and help guide you.
