You have been facing your challenges alone for long enough.
You’re struggling to feel understood by family, friends, and co-workers. Or, you have found your community, but you’re still not quite sure how to navigate all the challenges that come with being your authentic self.
You may be having trouble accepting yourself and feeling confident in who you are.
Or, you’re struggling with advocating for yourself. You have struggles like everyone else but do not have a safe place to talk about them. You’re just wanting to be seen, heard, and valued. You’re unsure where to turn, but you know you need help.
As an individual of the LGBTQIA+ community, you know that you are so much more than your gender identity or sexual orientation.
How Can LGBTQIA+ Therapy Help?
As an individual of the LGBTQIA+ community, you know that you are so much more than your gender identity or sexual orientation. You’re multifaceted, and you face challenges every day like everyone else. But, you may find it harder to find a safe place to talk about your challenges.
LGBTQIA+ therapy can help give you the safe and supportive environment you need. Here, you can share about and face these challenges. This is important because statistics show that the LGBTQIA+ community experiences mental health struggles at a higher rate. So, leaving these challenges unaddressed can lead to trauma, anxiety, and depression.
Why Might Someone Seek Out LGBTQIA+ Therapy?
There are many reasons an individual may seek LGBTQIA+ therapy. It can vary from only needing some support on navigating everyday struggles to needing help with more specific issues.
Some common reasons include:
- Family challenges
- Acceptance of & advocating for oneself
- Finding community
- Mental health struggles
These are only a few of the reasons that someone might seek out LGBTQIA+ therapy. But, it is important to note that everyone’s experience is different.
Accepting & Advocating For Yourself
Lack of Community
You may feel like you don’t fit in anywhere or are alone on your journey. It’s important to have a community that understands and accepts you. During LGBTQ therapy, you will have the chance to talk about your struggles in finding or staying connected to the community. Your counselor will also help you to develop a plan to find or create the community you want.
