Sometimes life give us unexpected (or even unwanted) challenges that are much easier to successfully navigate with help and support. Living and thriving as a member of the LGBTQIA+ community is a beautiful thing, but there can also be many challenges along the way that can leave their marks on us: struggling for self-acceptance or the acceptance of those we love, bullying and harassment, finding and expressing our authentic selves, feeling like we "fit", and having healthy and stable relationships. These challenges are in addition to mental and emotional challenges that are not specific to our community's experience.

It is possible to build the vibrant and connected relationship that you long for- I see it every day.

Have you been comparing yourself to others and frustrated with your own trajectory? Maybe you want to be hopeful but often wonder if the problem is you. Maybe you identify as LGBTQ+ and are looking for an unapologetically affirming environment. You may even have a strained or difficult relationship with religion that is affecting your adult life. Making the decision to pursue therapy can feel overwhelming initially. Exploring challenges in life can be scary. All of your feelings are valid and you deserve an environment to explore and consider the areas that life doesn’t always grant us time to navigate.

I am an affirming therapist for the lesbian, bisexual, gay, transgender, and queer community (LGBTQ).
You've been struggling for some time with being all alone in the world. You constantly have nagging worries that you will never find happiness or fulfillment. None of your friends understand what you are going through. It is so difficult to believe that things will ever get better. Close partners in your life abandoned you when you needed them the most. You try to move on, but you catch yourself thinking things like, “Am I attractive?” “Why don’t I feel good enough?” "What if I spend the rest of my life alone?" "What if I really am a failure?" The truth is, you deserve to live a life free of worry and fear. You deserve to thrive.

I am proud to identify as queer and find joy in working with the LGBTQIA+ community.
Do you find yourself at a crossroads and in need of some support? While change can be scary it can also offer new opportunities for growth and insight. Transitions can light up the unhealed parts of us, and make it difficult to discern our truth from the stories we’ve been told about who others think we are. My role in this is to help you discern what you want to take with you along the way and explore with you what’s standing in the way of you living your most authentic life.

I understand that each one is the true expert of their own story and circumstances. I’m originally from San Antonio. My cultural experience is rooted in being a BIPOC woman and being immersed in Hispanic cultural experiences and enmeshed in military traditions. I confidently navigate through cultural contexts with the LGBTQ community, military families, various religious affiliations, and other marginalized minority groups.

" I also work with LGBTQIA+ folks, gender identity issues (including letter referrals), and I am a kink, poly- and consensual non-monogamy aware therapist working with folks who hold these identities.
Going through transitions and changes in life can be pretty scary and, quite frankly, sometimes it really sucks. Whether it is in your personal life, at work, at school or in your relationship (or all of the above!), you might feel stuck and uncertain about what to do and where to head next. It's hard for you to picture where you want to see yourself in the future. Maybe you are in a place in life, feeling stale and routine, and you want something different, but don't know where to start. Or maybe you can't see how to navigate your current situation to get yourself to your future you dream about.

As an openly queer and neurodivergent psychologist I strive to create a space of trust, safety and resiliency for those within marginalized groups in society.
You wake up in the middle of the night, your mind swirling with thoughts of whether you'll ever be able to trust someone again – to let down those walls that have become your armor. The old ways of coping that once served you now seem to be crumbling, leaving you feeling even more adrift. Each time you tidy up a space, the weight of responsibilities feels unbearable, and you can't help but yearn for someone to care for you, to give you the break you so desperately need and deserve. If your day-to-day seems like a maze of responsibilities and obligations that leave little room for your own well-being, I understand and I can help.

LGBTQ+ Therapists

Do LGBTQ-affirmative therapists receive special training?

Yes. Many therapists who practice LGBTQ-affirmative therapy have completed specialized training, either during their degree program or as continuing education, to learn the core principles of affirmative therapy and how to best support their LGBTQ clients; some have received certifications in LGBTQ-affirmative therapy. Prospective clients should inquire as to a clinician’s background and training to ensure a good fit.

Why might I want to see an LGBTQ-affirming or LGBTQ-friendly therapist?

Queer and gender-non-conforming individuals frequently experience bias and marginalization in day-to-day life. Working with a therapist who understands these unique challenges, as well as accepts and affirms their identity, can help LGBTQ clients feel safe and supported during therapy—allowing them to better navigate their relationships, mental health, and anything else that they wish to explore during therapy. It is important to note that many therapists can be effective in their work with LGBTQ+ individuals, even in the absence of specific training or background knowledge. The most important component in therapy is the alliance between therapist and client, and this alliance can exist between individuals with very different backgrounds.

How can I find an LGBTQ-friendly therapist?

You may wish to inquire about a therapist’s expertise with your specific challenges or concerns—depression, for example, or relationship strife—as well as their past experiences treating LGBTQ+ clients. Prospective clients may also ask whether a therapist has obtained additional training and/or certification in LGBTQ-affirmative techniques.

How can I inquire about a therapist’s experience with LGBTQ issues?

Prospective clients should feel empowered to directly ask therapists whether they have received training or been certified in LGBTQ-affirming therapy; competent therapists will be happy to explain their educational background and preferred approach(es) to help a client find the best match for them. Clients may also wish to ask how a therapist has treated clients with their particular challenges in the past and what they expect treatment to look like.

Are all the therapists listed in the LGBTQ directory themselves members of the LGBTQ community?

While therapists may choose to disclose their sexual orientation or gender identity in their profiles, the LGBTQ directory features not only those who have shared this information but also those who assert specialized training or experience in providing support to queer individuals, couples or families.
