Transgender/LGBT

Although a person’s sexual or romantic orientation or gender identity may not be a source of distress, people who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual,   transgender, queer, asexual, or any other orientation or gender identity may find that the social stigma of living as a minority is a source of stress or anxiety.

 

When seeking therapy, whether for issues associated with one’s sexual, romantic, or gender identity or for concerns related to mental health, finding a qualified mental health professional who has experience and familiarity with the challenges members of the LGBT community often face can be critical to successful therapy outcomes.
