LGBTQ Counseling – Therapists, Coaches and Counselors in Alpharetta, GA

For those identifying as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, questioning or queer, there are often unique challenges involved in finding support while building and maintaining relationships with others. Although our culture has shifted to be more inclusive and accepting of LGBTQ individuals, discrimination and marginalization of this group still exists. Feeling “other” than those around us is a function of stigma; something most LGBTQ people will experience in their lifetime. It comes as no surprise that we find increased instances of anxiety, depression, addiction, and relational difficulties within the community.

In 1973, the American Psychological Association removed homosexuality from its manual of mental disorders. Today, we understand sexuality and gender as a spectrum – that is, we find many variations existing along a normal and healthy continuum of expression. Although therapists and psychiatrists have made substantial gains in depathologizing same sex preference, many remain inexperienced in working with members of the LGBTQ community. In what’s been termed a “dual stigma,” LGBTQ individuals may find it challenging to obtain mental health care from a provider who is informed and affirming of LGBTQ culture.

At Thriveworks, we strive to create an atmosphere of inclusion, where diversity is something to be celebrated. Our therapists use a holistic approach to join with our clients in their journey toward fulfillment. Are you ready to connect? Call (770) 284-9252 to schedule an appointment with one of our LGBTQ affirming therapists. There’s a safe space available for you here.

tting with other family. From the first day, she made a huge impact on our family. We were also working through a difficult, out of state custody matter. My grandchild was wonderfully guided through this transition to an excellent outcome where she's thriving in every area because of Heather Martin's keen insights, experience and caring. She's an invested advocate when working with children and their families, highly focused on the child's best interests and worked miracles for my grandchild. We will be forever touched and grateful for Heather's investment in our family. Can't say enough great things!!
