Member of the LGBTQ+ community experience the same mental health challenges as the wider population, including anxiety, depression, ADHD, relationship issues, self-esteem struggles, unexpected losses, marital conflict, eating disorders, histories of trauma and more.

In addition, LGBTQ+ community members have life situations reflecting their unique heritage and contemporary biases and pressures.

Our LGBTQ+ sensitive clinicians combine counseling and psychotherapy skills with familiarity about the particular issues confronting the LGBTQ+ community, including coming out to family and friends, transitioning, being bullied or shunned, processing microaggressions, having children, and coping with potential bias.

Philosophy

Culturally-Informed

The members of Presby Psych’s LGBTQ+ Sensitive Counseling and Psychotherapy Team stay abreast of the clinical and research literature about mental health issues and cultural burdens faced by LGBTQ+ children, adolescents, adults, couples, and children.

Trauma-Informed

As a trauma-informed mental health center, we do not ask or think about what is “wrong” with clients. Instead we focus on the life experiences that have caused suffering and bring you to us.

Integrative and Collaborative

Presby Psych clinicians co-create with clients a therapeutic relationship within which hurt and concerns can be healed, strengths and resilience built on, and growth facilitated.

Comprehensive

Clinicians on the LGBTQ+ Sensitive Counseling and Psychotherapy Team offer the same services to the LGBTQ+ community that we provide for all children, adolescents and families, adults and couples.

In addition, the clinicians on our specialty teams, including Alcohol and Substance Abuse Recovery Support and Psychotherapy Team , Eating Disorder Specialists , and Trauma Recovery Counseling and Psychotherapy Team include members of the LGBTQ+ Team.
