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

NOT CURRENTLY TAKING NEW CLIENTS. Download my referral list at http://shorturl.at/gqA57 ----- 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 & gender challenges, as well as mental health issues like depression, anxiety, stress management, minority stress, & 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 evening appointments.
