Mental Health Counseling and Therapy for LGBTQIA+ LGBTQ Affirming Care in a Safe Zone

Affirming Counseling for LGBTQIA+

People who are part of the LGBTQIA+ community can have a difficult time receiving help. So often this demographic feels misunderstood and insignificant. You may want someone to help you explore sexuality, identity, or help you navigate your own transition. Due to various reasons such as religion or societal pressures, an individual may be scared to look inside and explore all parts of themselves. You may be finally ready to take the step of discovering and aligning with your authentic self.

Helping you navigate life through any identity, sexuality, or transition. Let's walk the path of the LGBTQIA+ journey together.

Or you may be grounded in who you are and need support navigating challenges within your life. Or perhaps you have a challenge or problem that you would like to address which is separate from how you identify. Just because someone is LGBTQIA+ and has the desire for counseling, it does not mean that the focus or root of the challenge is stemming from how a person identifies. The environment of an individual can make or break a person. Individuals, society, or institutions can be close minded which creates prejudice, rejection, or serious harm against individuals who do not fit into a box. Otten Counseling is a safe place for any person regardless of a label which may be placed upon you. If you decide to work with Otten Counseling, you will never be convinced or swayed to identify with a certain sexual orientation, gender, gender expression, sex, or commitment style. Instead, you will be given a platform to discover your own truth. You will be given the opportunity to explore without judgement. If it is important for you to have a counselor who is also part of the LGBTQIA+ community, you have found that ability when you work with Bethany.
