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 heteronormative society. While our therapists are 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 whether or not identity issues are most important in the moment.

Transgender clients can have difficulty finding a therapist who is informed about their unique needs: understanding self and identity, exploring and supporting aspects of transitioning, navigating relationships, or validating the range of experiences of your body. Many of us at Lakeview Center for Psychotherapy have experience working with and affirming transgender clients.

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.

At Lakeview Center we use an integrative approach that takes into account the particular stressors queer clients may face. Read more about minority stress theory and Integrated AffirmativeTherapy here.
