LGBTQ counseling with Thriveworks Colorado Springs

It’s safe to say that most people would highly disagree with being told there are only two colors in the world- blue and pink- and that they must choose their favorite from those two. We all know from sight there are innumerable colors with different hues, shades, and strengths. However, if this same idea is applied to gender and sexuality, society would respond differently. Although the world has come a long way in accepting members of the LGBTQ community, there is still a lot of injustice, often times resulting in pain, directed towards those who simply see a wider array of colors than the majority. If you are part of this community, Thriveworks Colorado Springs would like to welcome you to our community of support, self-growth and healing.

What does LGBTQ counseling look like?

Our Thriveworks Colorado Spring’s counselors’ first goal to achieve with you, will be to heal any wounds that are already there. Identifying as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, or questioning can wear down the human soul and mind, resulting in difficulties such as:

  • Social anxiety
  • Self-harm
  • Depression
  • Past abuse
  • Eating disorders
  • Family concerns
  • Self esteem
  • Issues in School or work

Thriveworks Colorado Springs will work with you in overcoming these challenges and more. We understand, however, that just because nothing is holding you back doesn’t mean you will effortlessly begin to grow. How you identify with your gender and sexuality is a big part of who you are, but not all of it. What gets you up in the morning? What are your strengths? Your weakness? Someone (sources disagree who exactly) once said:

“You don’t have a soul. You are a soul. You have a body.”

Together, we will define the parts of you that make you one-of-a-kind and amazing. How do you want to present yourself to the world? What parts do you wish to strengthen? Colorado Springs’ counselors can help you with your transition to a different gender or a different mindset.

Finally, what are your goals? Are you trying to ‘come out’ to your friends and family? Perhaps you want to start your own business but are apprehensive for how customers will react? Is your aim college, but are unsure how to present yourself? Thriveworks Colorado Springs is here to guide you towards your goals and away from your fears.

It is an unhappy truth that much of the LGBTQ community faces depression, anxiety and thoughts of suicide. Youth are especially at risk, with 42% of LGBTQ youth having seriously contemplated suicide. It doesn’t have to be that way. Colorado Springs counselors are here to care for you and your loved ones through confidential, individual counseling that can help you become the best version of you!

e had a quite abusive life, prior to my adopting him. Directly from the onset of my scheduling his intake to his intake appointment, my spirit felt that this was going to be the correct place for him to be. Rachel, his therapist, is amazing! The entire staff is amazing. Their communication skills are dynamic and Talon is responding so positively; actually more so than he has with any other therapy group. The focus is on his success! Success in overcoming his obstacles and in life. As a therapist, myself, I highly recommend Thriveworks! Empathy, Compassion, Dynamic abilities in using therapeutic tools and in teaching clients how to use and apply them in life.
