In Honor of LGBTQ Pride month
June is LGBTQ Pride month in the United States and I wanted to take a moment to invite individuals, couples, or families who might be struggling with issues surrounding sexual orientation or gender identity in for a consultation. Whether you are an individual who feels ostracized from peers and family, a couple whose issues are not directly related to sexual orientation, yet you’re unsure about seeking therapy for fear of judgment and rejection, or a family who is struggling to understand a family member, I welcome you. My philosophy on therapy is positive, forward looking, and often seeks to challenge the status quo which is marginalizing to so many members of our society.
While it seems that we have been making strides towards equality we also must acknowledge that LGBTQ individuals, particularly young people, have a suicide rate that far exceeds the general population. If you feel isolated, demonized, misunderstood, or just depressed, please know that you are not alone and there is help available. If you are facing hard times but you aren’t ready to come in for therapy here are some resources that I hope you will find helpful.
