LifeStance Health Associates is a proud, LGBTQ+ affirming provider of mental health services. We have Therapists, Psychologist and Psychiatrists who specialize in treating the unique concerns that affect LGBTQ+ individuals. CPA recognizes the diversity within the LGBTQ+ community, including how oppression is a part of intersecting identities. Acknowledging intersectionality is an important part of the work we do to create an affirming space for those who seek treatment and support. LGBTQ+ individuals live with mental health issues at a much higher rate, some of which do not seek treatment for fear of discrimination and not feeling understood.
When an LGBTQ+ identifying individual seeks counseling, they can process the trauma that comes homophobia, transphobia, and other types of discrimination. They will have a safe, non-judgmental space to explore their gender identify and expression. Together with their provider, they will set goals for treatment as well as learn and implement coping skills to addressing their anxiety, depression, addiction, and other mental health issues that may be affecting them.
