Therapy provides structured support, and helps us gain self-awareness, build resilience, and learn new coping strategies. In therapy, we can create an emotional toolbox to navigate the ups and downs of life.
Therefore, it’s really important that your therapist has a strong understanding of the needs and experiences of the queer community.
A commonly used modalities is called Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). CBT is a science-based approach where you identify and understand problems in terms of the relationship between your thoughts, feelings, and behaviors.
Some people seek therapy after major life events, like a break-up or losing a loved one. Others seek therapy for specific issues, like depression, anxiety, or substance use.
While a therapist will help with these things, therapy can be just as meaningful without a major life event or health issue.
Investing in our mental health gives us space to think about and reflect on our gender, our sexuality, and the ways we relate to the world as LGBTQ+ individuals.
Our partner therapists also offer income-based discounts (aka sliding-scale slots) to make care more affordable.
