Find Comfort in Your Identity with LGBTQIA+ Therapy

There are several reasons you might be looking for LGBTQIA+ therapy. First, Your identity is important but it can also feel like a source of great pain and disconnection from the weight of years of shame and fear of ridicule. Second, sometimes you feel alienated, put out, and treated less than in your family or friend group. Maybe you’re starting to embrace your sexual orientation and you’re feeling confused, conflicted, and embarrassed. You deserve to have someone in your corner that truly listens and understands and reminds you that there is nothing wrong with you.

Maybe you’ve been coping with internalized hatred with your identity with self-harm behavior. You’ve maybe been abandoned by family members and close friends or are scared you will be and are grappling with your own sense of self-worth and connection. You sometimes wonder, is it worth it to be who I am?
