Common Reasons to Begin Therapy
It is common for people to struggle with figuring out who they are, but for the LGBTQIA+ community, there are frequently added stressors related to misunderstanding and rejection that can come from family, friends and the community as a whole. Sometimes people seek therapy specifically related to these issues, and sometimes it has nothing to do with identifying at LGBTQIA+, it is just struggling with life in general. Some things people frequently seek counseling for include:
Feeling depressed or anxious
Isolation from others
Low Self Esteem
Support During Transitions
