LGBT+ Therapist

You deserve someone who understands your issues

We're part of the community, and we want to support you.

Best Therapies welcomes Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Questioning, Queer, Intersex and Asexual (LGBTQIA+) folks who want support. We are committed to and value diversity for our practitioners, families, and communities.

LGBTQIA+, Gender Non-Conforming (GNC), and Non-Binary (Enby) as well as Queer and Trans People of Color (QTPOC) folks continue to experience stigma, harassment, discrimination, and violence. If you are in need of affirming support surrounding your experience as someone who is questioning their sexuality, gender expression, or identity within the LGBTQIA+ community, and are interested in connecting with a practitioner at Best Therapies, please reach out.

Our team strives to validate and support individuals working through issues including, but not limited to, the following: 

  • The impacts of stigma (prejudice, discrimination, and violence)
  • Those affected by religious trauma
  • Folks that have been harmed by diet culture
  • Previous experiences with therapists who were not LGBTQIA+ affirming and/ or actively caused harm due to their bias against LGBTQIA+ persons 
  • Differentiating sexual orientation from their gender identity 
  • Challenges experienced within LGBTQIA+ relationships 
  • Family of origin conflicts, concerns, and traumas
  • Incongruent values, norms, and beliefs within Lesbian, Gay, and Bisexual members of racial and ethnic minority groups and QTPOC (Queer Trans People of Color) 
  • Challenges and risks specific to LGBTQIA+ youth
