Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Questioning or Queer, Intersexed, Asexual
I can never fully explain the various emotions that some members of the LGBTQ+ feel as a result of “coming out.” Some individuals have supportive family and friends, while others experience a great deal of hurt, pain and rejection. It is my goal as a therapist to create a safe and supportive space filled with understanding and compassion for members of the LGBTQ+ communities. I want to create space for individuals to heal from the pain and rejection experienced by the flaws of societal, religious, and/or cultural standards. Lastly, it is my personal mission to help individuals create balance and learn to integrate their sexuality into their lifestyles as a individual characteristic and not a defining characteristic. I want to help facilitate conversation and dialogue to see the differences between being “Gay Tina” instead of Tina that is gay, likes hiking, and watching romantic movies. At the end of the session, I want clients to know that you can be your own person whose sexuality does not have to overshadow your individuality or personality.
