LGBTQ+ Support Groups
We should make clear that not all the support groups listed here are gay themselves. Rather, they specialize in helping with aspects of being gay in Miami or homosexual. They provide help for gay couples in gay relationships, gay issues and issues that affect gay life.

If you're gay or are looking for help with gay issues in Miami or for a Miami gay support group these professionals provide gay counseling and gay friendly care for gays or lesbians. They include gay friendly support groups plus gay support groups in Miami, gay friendly psychologists, and gay friendly counsellors.



What is the difference between Group Therapy and a Support Group?
Miami Support Groups and Group Therapy both offer a safe place to explore important issues. It is important, however, to understand the difference between the two.

Group therapy in Miami is led by a therapist, group psychotherapist, or group counselor, and is generally structured around an issue. The therapist guides the group through a program as the group works together to better understand thoughts and feelings. Experienced therapists lead psychotherapy groups for various ages, such as adults, and specific issues including anger management, anxiety, and coping skills.

Support groups in Miami are usually facilitated by a therapist or counselor, but can also be led by members with lived experiences. Generally, a support group is less structured than a therapy group. Support groups bring together members to provide support and strength to each other, often around a common challenge such as addiction or grief.

Most therapy groups will meet for a fixed length of time with a consistent group of members, while many support groups meet for an indefinite period of time with members coming and going.
