Lesbian, gay, and bisexual clients may seek therapy for reasons relating to their sexual orientation or not. It will not be assumed that your problem is due to your sexual orientation, however, if you wish to explore your feelings of attraction, stage of acceptance, societal struggles, or more, you will be encouraged and accepted.
Gender identity exploration is an area in which I work with clients. Gender queer or gender non-conforming clients express relief that they were able to discuss thoughts and feelings about their gender identity. You may desire to take steps toward congruent gender expression, which we will explore if you wish. Transgender people are supported with help navigating transition. Couples and family therapy is often needed to develop understanding with your family members about your identity, transition, and relationships.
GLBTQ clients, please see the other writings on the specialties pages. These descriptions are applicable for you, too!
