What challenges benefit from LGBTQIA+ therapy?

The caring Greenpoint Psychotherapy providers have helped many LGBTQIA+ people navigate issues ranging from gender dysphoria, identity development, and body image to transition challenges and making decisions about gender-affirming treatments.

Transgender and gender non-conforming decisions alone can be overwhelming, yet the LGBTQIA+ community also faces the trauma, violence, and limitations imposed by a world filled with discrimination, prejudice, and hatred.

At least 86% of LGBTQIA+ youth go to school every day only to face bullying, physical assaults, and outright denial of their fundamental rights. Everyone in the LGBTQIA+ community faces a two- to four-times higher risk of depression and anxiety compared to cisgender people.

No matter what issues affect your emotional and mental well-being, the Greenpoint Psychotherapy providers offer genuine compassion, support, and guidance to deal with the challenges and enjoy the life you deserve.

What services might I receive through LGBTQIA+ therapy?

Greenpoint Psychotherapy specializes in individual, couples, group, and family therapy. Their therapists are skilled in many types of psychotherapies, creative arts therapies, and complementary techniques like mindfulness and yoga.

During your first telehealth visit, your therapist learns about your concerns, completes an evaluation, and discusses the therapeutic approach to meet your needs.

They treat any mental health conditions you may have, such as anxiety or depression, while also supporting your LGBTQIA+ challenges. However, not all problems need structured therapy. For example, you may want to talk through and get guidance for difficult decisions.

Does LGBTQIA+ therapy help me come out?

Coming out may be one of the most difficult and life-changing decisions for LGBTQIA+ people. Deciding when to take this step is incredibly hard because you don’t know how people will react. But you may find that it’s easier if you prepare ahead of time.

As you explore your thoughts, feelings, and concerns, your Greenpoint Psychotherapy provider offers guidance and explores your options and potential outcomes. They work with you, preparing you as much as possible for the fallout.

Everyone needs to find the best approach for them when coming out. You can gain confidence to be true to yourself as you talk with a caring therapist — especially if you speak with one of their trans therapists who has walked in your shoes and can offer insight and support.
