Counseling for Marietta’s LGBTQ Community—Sensitive and Informed Mental Health Care

While many in the LGBTQ community are enjoying recent advances for their legal equality and cultural acceptance, many who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, or questioning understand that there is still much work to be done. Both the good and the bad are true. Human rights victories for marriage equality and the growing number of cultural voices using their platform to promote inclusion are some of the highlights. The lowlights are that marginalization and discrimination are often regular occurrences for those within the LGBTQ community. These forms of inequality exact a severe toll. The LGBTQ community as a whole suffers higher rates of anxiety, addiction, and depression than other populations.

The counselors, life coaches, and therapists who work at Thriveworks Marietta understand the power of living in one’s trust and the power of self-acceptance. We are committed to providing holistic care to our clients and in particular, to support our clients who are members of the LGBTQ community with the informed and sensitive care that they deserve. If you could benefit from LGBTQ+ counseling, reach out to Thriveworks Marietta for help. We’re here for you.

What Is LGBTQ Inclusive Therapy?

Good therapy offers individualized care. Each person’s experiences are unique and unlike any others. Your experiences are one-of-a-kind. No one else faces the challenges that you face. No one else has the opportunities you have. No one else has lived the experiences that you have lived. When the therapists at Thriveworks Marietta offer inclusive and affirmative counseling, it also means that they are inclusive and affirmative of your unique story. Our professionals work hard to earn each client’s trust, as trust is the basis of any therapeutic relationship. As the relationship between each counselor and each client progresses, clients often feel comfortable going deeper and often experience more healing. To go deeper, therapists may raise questions such as…

  • How did you decide to start therapy?
  • What are some of the exciting things happening in your life?
  • How is your living situation? Is it safe?
  • Is there were one thing you could change about your life, what would it be?
  • What do you want to be doing in a year? Five years? Ten? More?

Common LGBTQ+ Issues

When the counseling room is a judgment-free place, people often feel safe enough to explore without feeling ashamed or without fear. Clients often feel comfortable speaking freely of their past trauma as well as their future hopes. Topics that are commonly addressed in LGBTQ therapy include:

  • Coming out issues
  • Family concerns
  • Dealing with discrimination and non-acceptance
  • Past trauma and abuse
  • Healthy communication
  • Depression
  • Self-esteem issues
  • Transcending gender roles
  • Gender and sexual identity
  • Eating disorders
  • Dating and other relationships
  • Addiction Anxiety and stress

Thriveworks helped me realize that I do believe people can change. I’m not the person I was three months ago, broken and fearful. I’m healthy and happy and for the first time being kind to myself. Thank you for giving me my life back.
