LGBTQIA+ Counseling in Asheville

“Helping adults and adolescents embrace and love all parts of themselves.”

Your identity is important but it can cause pain, disconnection, and even shame. Sometimes you can feel alienated or different from everyone else in your life. Maybe you’re starting to embrace your sexual orientation and you’re feeling confused, conflicted, and embarrassed. Perhaps you are looking for support from someone who truly understands.

Maybe you’ve been coping with internalized homophobia with substance use or self-injurious behavior. You may feel abandoned by family members and close friends and grappling with your own sense of self-worth.

Our clinicians are well versed in helping the LGBTQIA+ community and not just due to inclusivity training. Many of our clinicians identify and have experienced life grappling with these very same struggles. We truly get it and we’re here to help you live your best life, and will empower you to love all parts of yourself.

“Helping adults and adolescents embrace and love all parts of themselves.”

Sometimes life feels confusing, isolating, and painful. It can feel like we don’t belong or fit in.

Most people who pursue therapy for LGBTQIA+ support can feel like they don’t fit in this world or haven’t found their place. Maybe you mask how you’re feeling to protect yourself and feel closeted.

Do you struggle with identity, orientation, shame? Do you feel like life feels alienating and lonely?

Do any of the following resonate with you?

  • You feel ashamed of who you are and who you’ve always been
  • You don’t think you can come out to your friends and family due to fear of how they’ll react
  • Life feels isolating like you are set to do this alone
  • You are fearful of being picked out of a crowd, picked on, bullied, or worse
  • The state of the world feels scary like you have to hide yourself and your feelings
  • You’ve always felt different and grew up in a household that was less tolerant and accepting
  • Maybe you’ve grown up in a very religious home and struggled to feel acceptance and safety

If any of these connect, know that you’re not alone. We are here to help and walk alongside you. We are not here to “fix you” or make you feel different but to empower you to embrace your true self and all of your parts. Asking for help does not make you weak. In fact, it is one of the most courageous things you can do.
