LGBTQIA+

Are you an LGBTQIA+ teen feeling isolated, anxious, or stressed? Finding it hard to get through the day?

Do you wonder if you’ll ever be able to live your life who you truly are?

Are you feeling hopeless and wonder if life is even worth living?

According to the Trevor Project, 71% of LGBTQIA+ youth have felt sad or hopeless for at least two weeks of the past year.  Even more scary, 39% of LGBTQ youth seriously considered attempting suicide in the past twelve months, with more than half of transgender and non-binary youth having seriously considered.  National Alliance on Mental Illness, reports LGBTQIA+ youth are at four times as likely to attempt suicide. The 2017 KFF Disparities Policy report also found that LGBTQIA+ individuals experience higher levels of sexual and physical violence and substance abuse.

The stakes are high.

And you’re not alone.

Whether you’re facing issues like stigma, discrimination, shame, or rejection, or simply the challenges of everyday life, counseling is key.

Effective treatments exist for mental health issues; there are strategies to you remain calm amidst the turbulence of the teen years. By addressing your particular issues and struggles, we’ll pave an empowering path forward.

So if you’ve experienced…

– Feelings of social isolation

– Trouble coming out

– Feelings of despair

– Physical symptoms like headaches, sweating, shakes & jumpiness, trouble concentrating, a frequent need to urinate, or stomach uneasiness

– A need to mask substance abuse like heavy alcohol or drug use, or high risk sexual activities

– Pressure to be someone other than who you feel you are

Or if you’ve often thought…

“It’s safer to stay at home.”

“I’d rather be dead.”

“I don’t matter.”

“If only my body looked like that…”

“Why don’t I feel like…?”
