LGBTQ Counseling

Lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender or queer (LGBTQ) people have unique concerns and needs as they learn to navigate a society that often tells them that who they are is not okay.  LGBTQ people often deal with discrimination and prejudice, both overt and subtle, and this can lead to other problems such as symptoms of depression or anxiety.  Counseling can offer a place to process these painful experiences, learn to combat discrimination and prejudice and learn to take care of and value yourself fully in a world that does not always affirm you.

One of the unfortunate parts of our current state of health care in Georgia is that health care providers are placed in a position as gatekeepers to health care for transgender and non-binary people. As part of that position, I am willing to meet with people to discuss your gender identity and write a letter to health care providers as a way to support obtaining gender confirming medications or surgery.

 Contact me to start counseling to help you learn to love yourself just as you are.
