Heather Stambaugh, LGBTQ+ Specialist Therapist is not currently accepting new clients.

***Not accepting new clients at this time. Please email lakelandLGBTtherapy@gmail.com for referral info, or visit my website: LakelandLGBTTherapy.com*** Are you struggling to feel accepted & comfortable in your sexual or gender identity? Or are you yearning to find a way to navigate your coming-out or identity-formation process? I help members of the LGBTQ+ community sort through sexuality and gender challenges, as well as mental health issues like depression, anxiety, stress management, minority stress, and self-esteem. I provide Hormone & Surgery referral letters for transgender clients after required assessment.

My focus is LGBTQ+ Affirmative Therapy because everyone deserves to be supported, understood, and celebrated during their therapy experience. I understand that here in Polk County, there are few resources available to the LGBTQ+ community, and it's my passion to be a mental health resource where it's truly needed.

There is absolutely no judgment or criticism in therapy with me, ever! I would be happy to chat about your situation and make your acquaintance by phone or email before we start working together. I usually have appointments available within a few weeks time. I see clients Mondays - Fridays with some limited evening appointments.

Meagan has a wealth of therapeutic knowledge and skill, surpassing that of some of the most seasoned clinicians I've known. I very comfortably refer to her often, knowing she will provide excellent care to those in need. Her growing specialties in parental mental health and LGBTQ+ affirmative therapy are a great service to our community.
