LGBTQ+ Counseling

LGBTQ+ Counseling For Individuals, Couples & Families

Here at L & B Counseling, we take pride in providing support for the LGBTQ+ community including those questioning or non-gender conforming identities. Everyone has life struggles with which they are dealing, but being part of the LGBTQ+ community often comes with additional stress, such as discrimination, low self esteem, identity issues, depression, and anxiety. Despite rapidly growing cultural acceptance of the LGBTQ+ community, many challenges still exist due to how they are mistreated, bullied, and stigmatized in society. Research shows that youth who identify as LGBTQ+ are at an increased risk of suicidal ideation and are more than four times as likely to attempt suicide than their peers (Johns et al., 2019; Johns et al., 2020).

During a counseling session, you will speak confidentially with one of our licensed therapists who is familiar with issues affecting diverse genders and sexualities. LGBTQ+ counseling can help with:

  • Exploring your sexual orientation and/or gender idenitity  

  • Thinking about coming out and providing assistance with that process

  • Dealing with discrimination or bullying

  • Identifying and managing depression, anxiety, or gender dysphoria 

  • Concerns around relationship issues, parenting, sexual issues and addiction

  • We also offer support and counseling to parents of LGBTQ youth, as a bridge for families navigating changes in identity.

Whether you are struggling to come out, having family/relationship issues, or dealing with daily struggles, your therapist will meet you where you are in a comfortable environment that allows you to speak freely, openly, and honestly about your needs without judgment. L & B Counseling is here to help you navigate the challenges in order to become the most authentic version of yourself.
