What Can LGBTQ+ Counseling Do for Me?

For the LGBTQ+ community, counseling or therapy can serve as a way to address a variety of systematic and personal issues. Some of the ways therapy can help you may include:

  • Transcending gender roles: Even lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and questioning individuals often fall back on heteronormative modes of thought when it comes to gender roles. Undoing years of social training can take time, but a licensed mental health professional can help you address any outstanding issues you have with preconceived gender roles.
  • Discussing your gender identity with family: Many families — even supportive ones — can use guidance when it comes to accepting and understanding gender identity. Your therapist can use family or individual therapy to address everything from accidental misgendering to combating outdated gender expectations.
  • Managing issues in the workplace: Navigating the workplace can often feel especially hazardous when you’re a member of the LGBTQ+ community, especially if you don’t have supportive leadership. A counselor, therapist, or another mental health professional can teach you how to advocate for yourself and your rights while keeping your mental health your primary focus.

The exact issues you discuss and your exact treatment plan will depend on the type of counseling you seek and the specific issues you’re facing. Your provider may perform therapy such as cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), family therapy, or interpersonal therapy as part of your plan.

My wife and I had an excellent experience with our amazing counselor Sam. We reached out for help with communication and intimacy issues and he helped us make real positive change in our lives. The strategies we developed with Sam have made a huge difference and we feel more connected than ever. He was always attentive, thoughtful, and accommodating to our busy schedules. The option to meet remotely or in person was a huge plus for us. We highly recommend his services.
