Individual Therapy for LGBTQ Individuals:
A Shared Narrative

Counseling Identifies Your Challenges

An important part of our work together will involve us exploring how your past has contributed to the challenges you face today. For many LGBTQ people, this means identifying the origin of unproductive thoughts and feelings which may have resulted from the closet, family of origin challenges, and/or painful experiences of discrimination and abuse. Gaining insight into how these experiences have informed the person you are today will provide the foundation for our work together. Individual therapy will also provide an opportunity to identify the strengths that helped you survive, so we can leverage those strengths to help you achieve the happiness and fulfillment you want today.

Resolve Your Struggle To Connect with Individual Exploration

Once we identify the ways in which your past has impacted you today, we will challenge and change any unhelpful beliefs and patterns that may be preventing you from developing and maintaining the support system of other LGBTQ people and creating a chosen family for yourself. After all, gay, bi, and queer relationships are challenging enough to navigate as it is since. Unlike straight people who are usually friends with the same sex and romantic partners with the opposite sex, we often face the additional challenge of looking for friends and romantic partners with other gay, bi, and queer men, and that can really complicate things. Focused individual therapy can provide an opportunity for personal growth and development so you can navigate these challenges more effectively.

Therapy Helps You Heal, Grow, and Evolve

If you're a gay, bi, or queer man and find yourself struggling with anxiety, depression, a major life transition, relationship issues, or social isolation, I can help. I will provide an affirming and validating space, so you can explore your thoughts and feelings openly without fear of judgment, heal from the damaging effects of discrimination and self-doubt and develop more positive ways of thinking and feeling about yourself and our community. In doing so, you will be better equipped to build the life and authentic meaningful relationships you want.
