The stigma and discrimination LGBTQ individuals often face can be a serious impediment to your well-being. LGBTQIA+ affirmative therapy can help empower individuals to effectively navigate challenges.
While many Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer (or questioning) individuals seek counseling for reasons similar to non-LGBTQ individuals (i.e. – anxiety, depression, stress, trauma, and couples therapy, etc.), they also face many unique challenges within their community. Stigma and discrimination are often experienced on a regular basis from society, family members, peers, co-workers, and even classmates.
What is LGBTQIA+ Affirmative Therapy?
Affirmative therapy helps individuals learn how to cope with stigma and discrimination, as well as with gender identity, and sexual identity issues. This approach to psychotherapy is focused on empowering LGBTQ individuals in all areas of life and relationships.
Working from an affirmative approach, HM Psychological Services seeks to honor the unique challenges faced by LGBTQ individuals and help them navigate the challenges in an effective way.
HM Psychological Services offers a safe, shame and judgement free environment to explore sexual and/or gender identity experiences. We will work together to identify the daily struggles that come with identifying as a member of the LGBTQ+ community.
