LGBTQIA + Affirming Therapy
We are passionate about providing affirming therapy to the LGBTQIA+ population
Do you identify as LGBTQIA+ and struggle with mental health? Are you impacted by negative beliefs about yourself or identity?
You may have experienced insensitive healthcare providers in the past. At SageMind Psychology you will find clinicians who are dedicated and passionate about providing an affirming space to the LGBTQIA+ community. In an effort to provide culturally competent care, we are specifically trained in LGBTQIA+ care, are continuously bringing in experts to further our awareness and knowledge, and participating in supervision that is focused on improving our work with the LGBTQIA+ community.
Our work with the LGBTQIA+ population may specifically target the disproportionate trauma you may have experienced due to your identity, or may simply be focused on other difficulties you are experienced, yet ensuring your space is an affirming and safe one. The therapy space is yours to use as you wish.
Our therapists recognize that you may need a space to simply process your feelings, questions, and identity. Developing and affirming an identity is a process, and we will meet you where you are at and support you during that journey.
You may be experiencing shame due to internalized belief systems about your identity, and this shame might be impacting your relationship with yourself and others. We provide therapy that helps you develop insight into the connection these unwanted belief systems have on our relationships, and provides guidance on how you can challenge these systems. Our ultimate goal is to provide a space where your new internalized belief system is in line with your goals and values.
The therapists at SageMind Psychology are eager to learn and grow ourselves. As such, we create a space where open communication and feedback is highly valued. We encourage you to discuss anything we can do to create a safe, affirming space for you.
If you identify as LGBTQIA+ and are in need of culturally competent mental health support, therapy at SageMind Psychology can affirm your experience so that you can safely grow and live your best life.
