“…your silence will not protect you”
– Audre Lorde
I enjoy working with clients who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, queer, transsexual, transgender, cisgender, non-binary, gender non-conforming, and questioning. Together we can explore issues of identity, coming out, and gender transition.
According to the National Alliance on Mental Illness, LGBTQIA+ individuals have triple the risk of developing a mental health disorder. The 2017 KFF Disparities Policy report also found that LGBTQIA+ individuals experience higher levels of sexual and physical violence and substance abuse. The stakes are high and you’re not alone.
So if you’ve experienced…
– Feelings of social isolation
– Trouble coming out
– Pressure to be someone other than who you feel you are
I look forward to providing you professional help in a supportive, trusting environment. If you’re looking for an understanding ear, please contact me today for an appointment.
