At Lotus Counseling Center, we strongly believe that your sexual orientation or gender identity is not in itself an issue in need of psychological attention. However, if you find that it is causing emotional distress due to others’ misunderstanding or social stigma, seeking support could help decrease stress, anxiety or discomfort.
Our therapists are familiar with many of the challenges faced by members of the LGBTQIA+ community, an important aspect for obtaining successful outcomes in therapy. We work from an identity-affirmative standpoint that encourages you to self-define and build a narrative around your identity. We offer support for common LGBTQIA+ issues such as coming out and transitioning, and connect you with helpful resources such as peer groups and medical care when necessary.
