Best Therapies welcomes lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, questioning, queer, intersex and asexual (LGBTQIA+) folks who want support. It’s getting scary out there for these communities — that’s why it’s more important than ever that we’re committed to and value diversity for our practitioners, families and communities.
LGBTQIA+, gender non-conforming (GNC), and nonbinary (enby) as well as queer and trans people of color (QTPOC) folks continue to experience stigma, harassment, discrimination and violence. If you need 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.

This type of therapy can help folks explore and affirm their gender identity. It can be especially helpful for transgender and nonbinary folks who may be questioning their gender identity or considering medical interventions such as hormone therapy or surgery. An LGBT counselor may use a variety of techniques, such as talk therapy, mindfulness and cognitive-behavioral therapy, to help the person gain clarity about their gender identity and develop coping skills to navigate any challenges that may arise.
Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) helps a person identify and replace negative thought patterns and behaviors. This can be especially helpful for someone struggling with depression, anxiety or other mental health concerns.
Mindfulness-based therapy is a type of therapy that focuses on being present in the moment and cultivating a non-judgmental attitude toward thoughts and feelings. This can be especially helpful for individuals who are struggling with stress and anxiety.
Best Therapies believes in providing affirming care, and we have several therapists on staff who identify as LGBTQ+ who are here to support you on your healing journey.
