LGBTQIA+

Lakeview Center for Psychotherapy provides individual, couples, and group therapy for clients who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer or questioning, intersex, asexual or allied.

We understand the complexities of existing on the queer spectrum within the context of a hetero-normative society. While our therapists are informed and sensitive to these issues, we are committed to being guided by our clients as to which aspects of their identity and life choices feel free and authentic; which feel more conflicted, confusing, or unsettled; and even whether or not identity issues are most important in the moment.

Transgender clients can have difficulty finding a therapist who is responsive to and informed about their unique needs, whether it be understanding the self, exploring and supporting aspects of transitioning, navigating relationships, or validating the experience of the body. Many of us at Lakeview Center for Psychotherapy have experience working with and affirming transgender clients, and our goal is to help all LGBTQIA+ clients learn about and express their sexual and gender identities authentically in their lives.

Common areas of concern include the coming-out process, questioning sexual orientation, identity, social stigma, non-acceptance from friends and family, interpersonal relationships, blended families, experience of the body, and the complex and deeply personal process of transitioning.
