There are many joys to be found by embracing your sexual orientation and gender identity. I am honored that I might be able to help you along in this journey. Members of the LGBTQ+ community are strong. They are creative. They are social and full of love. They also face many unique challenges. These may come in the form of discrimination, limited family support, depression, anxiety, substance use, exposure to trauma and difficulty navigating the complexities of dating, sex and relationships.
At Welcome Connections, we offer a personal and professional understanding of your life experiences. You may be looking for someone to help you explore, grow and become more comfortable in your own skin. You may be seeking support as you navigate the continual process of ‘coming out’ across your lifetime. You may be seeking help in other areas of your life from someone who can understand the daily influences the sexuality and gender can have. Using Cognitive Behavior Therapy through an LGBTQ+-affirming lens, we will help you to identify your goals and take steps toward achieving them.
