LGBT+

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, our families, and our communities. 

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)
  • the perception that a person who identifies within the LGBTQIA+ spectrum is mentally ill
  • the belief that sexual orientation can be changed 
  • previous experiences with therapists who lacked knowledge of or actively caused harm due to their bias against LGBTQIA+ persons 
  • differentiating sexual orientation from gender identity 
  • challenges experienced within LGBTQIA+ relationships 
  • family of origin conflicts, concerns and issues
  • incongruent values, norms, and beliefs within Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual members of racial and ethnic minority groups and QTPOC (Queer Trans People of Color) 
  • challenges and risks specific to LGBTQIA+ youth

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 support surrounding your experiences as a someone who is questioning their sexuality or gender expression or identify within the LGBTQIA+ and are interested in connecting with a practitioner at Best Therapies, please contact us.
