LGBTQIA Affirming Counseling

In Colorado

A safe space for you

The LGBTQIA community experiences mental health issues at a disproportionately high rate. Although progress has been made, the LGBTQ+ community continues to face discrimination which leads to experiencing low confidence, self-esteem issues, depression, anxiety, and trauma.

Are you tired of experiencing shame?

Your thoughts are constantly in conflict with one another, being pulled in two different directions. The negative self-talk doesn't seem to leave and it is exhausting.

You may know where these feelings come from, but no matter how hard you fight they continue to persist.

You want to feel confident in who you truly are but just don't know how to move forward and feel better.

Sexuality is so important to your identity and it deserves to be integrated into your life.

Sexuality

We often taught to ignore the pleasure in our bodies. This can lead to feeling disconnected from ourselves and our partners.

Through therapy, we can explore the messages you received from society, peers, and family that impacted your view on sexuality.

Whether it is exploring your attraction, pleasure, sexual desires, kinks, or non-monogamy I am here to be your guide.

Together, we will challenge and break free of the beliefs society created, so you can feel more confident in yourself.

Gender Identity

You wish you were born differently. All your life, you have felt that something did not feel right. You struggle with hating your body and feel frustrated by the gender expectations in society.

You feel stuck with the thoughts in your head and want clarity.

Gender affirming therapy can help flesh out the thoughts in your head to better understand who you want to be and how to do it.

Religious Trauma

Growing up, were you often told that being gay is a sin? It is a powerful message to hear and we often internalize it within ourselves.

This can lead us to feel shame about who we are. I can help heal this trauma by guiding you through your life experiences in a way that feels safe.

I promise to always listen to you and go at a pace that feels right for you.
