Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans (LGBT) Affirmative Therapy
What is LGBTQ affirmative therapy? It is an approach to therapy that embraces a positive view of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans, and Queer (LGBTQ) identities and relationships.
LGBTQ affirmative therapy addresses the impact homophobia, bi-phobia, transphobia, and heterosexism have on the lives of LGBTQ clients. In addition to exploring how negative messages and experiences impact one's sense of self and identity, LGBT affirmative therapy provides a safe space to process one's own internalization of these negative messages. I also believe in exploring and examining the intersection of an LGBTQ identity with one's ethnicity, socioeconomic status, religion, age, etc.
I value creating a safe and accepting space to share your story and explore your thoughts and feelings, free of judgment and imposed values or beliefs.
Whether you are exploring your sexuality for the first time, coming out, dating, parenting, or wanting to dig deeper into how negative messages and experiences you have encountered regarding non-heterosexual/non-cis gendered identities may play a role currently in your personal, relational, and/or professional life, I would be honored to support you at this time.
