What issues are discussed in an LGBTQ counseling session?
During an LGBTQ counseling session, you will speak privately and confidentially with a licensed therapist who is familiar with issues facing people of diverse genders and sexualities. You can talk about any concerns you have, whether they are specific to your gender identity/sexual orientation or not. LGBTQ counseling can help with exploring your gender identity or expression; exploring your sexual orientation; thinking about coming out; identifying and managing depression, anxiety, or gender dysphoria; and dealing with discrimination or bullying. Your LGBTQ counselor can also help with concerns such as relationship issues, sexual problems, parenting matters, and addiction.
