Searching for an LGBTQ affirming counselor who offers a brave space to discuss your life?
Life transitions such as divorce, health issues (new diagnosis, caring for a parent or child with physical and/or cognitive disabilities), death, a new baby, career change or career loss, a move to a new neighborhood or city, or retirement can bring on a number of unfamiliar thoughts and feelings. What do I do now? How do I move forward? Who can I turn to for support? Contact me about counseling and together we will work to address your feelings of uncertainty.
Anxiety and Stress
Feelings such as increased sadness, anxiety, stress, low self-esteem, helplessness, etc. are uncomfortable. These feelings can create strained relationships in many aspects of your life. Are you ready to understand where excessive stress and anxiety come from and how to engage in therapy to work through them? If so, counseling is a great place to start the exploration process of understanding. Let's talk!
Gender identity and/or sexual identity are not always a source of distress among individuals who identify at LGBTQ+. This is an unfortunate assumption made by family, friends, colleagues, etc. but I understand this may or may not be your reality. Do you want to work through thoughts and feelings you have about your gender identity? Do you want to work through feelings of isolation, stress, or marginalization? Or are you looking for a nonjudgmental space to explore issues such as coming out, anxiety, or stress? Reach out to me about counseling and let's chat!
Counseling (also referred to as therapy) is where you can openly discuss the problems nagging at you and following you around every day on a variety of subjects. Do you have moments where you feel anxiety or feel like you are having a panic attack? Or do you feel overwhelmed by the amount of stress you feel at work or at home? Do you feel sad and blue for reasons you can’t seem to put into words? Does the thought of a shift in your normal routine seem overwhelming? Maybe you are questioning the thoughts and desires you feel for someone and how it goes against supposed societal norms. You can share your personal thoughts, feelings, and behaviors with a counselor (like me) and, as a result, start to see patterns and themes in their own life with the help of reflective listening and understanding. Counseling is a collaborative relationship. It's a relationship where the two of us work together to help you create meaningful treatment goals. Does this sound like a process you want and need at this time in your life? If you feel counseling could be helpful, reach out to me and let’s talk.
