I provide individual, couples, family & group services for the LGBTQIAPD+ community. I am in the community myself as a cisgender lesbian female. I have been working with the community since the beginning of my career as a therapist. Additionally, I continue to research and teach about the LBGTQIAPD+ community as an adjunct psychology professor where I mainly teach about the intersectionality of gender, sex, sexuality and ethnicity/race. Also, I do not assume to know everything about the community, and I continue to learn more through continued education provided by my field.
Whether you are coming out (though coming out can be a constant, never-ending occurrence,) you are experiencing relationship issues, you are feeling conflicted about your sexuality/gender/identity, you are feeling conflicted about your religion and sexuality/gender identity, or all/none of the above. I also want to acknowledge that being LGBTQIAPD+ doesn’t mean that the driving force of you seeking counseling focuses solely on the fact that you are lesbian/gay/bisexual/transgender/queer/questioning/intersex/asexual/pansexual/demisexual/however you choose to label yourself. I get that. LGBTQIAPD-related issues or not, I am here for you.
As a feminist therapist, I believe it can be important to pay attention to, manage, and try to work through how complex intersectionality can be related to identity. When you are a part of more than one marginalized/oppressed group that can add multifaceted layers to your everyday life compared to others. I not only treat this professionally, but I live through this myself as a queer WOC.
