LGBTQIA+ Therapy

At Cultivate Therapy, we provide therapy by and for the LGBTQIA+ community, allies, and family members. Our goal is to create a safe and affirming space where individuals can explore their identities, navigate unique challenges, cultivate self-acceptance and build meaningful relationships.  

 

Our Services Include:

  • Individual Therapy:  We help individual clients exploring personal growth and identity exploration while ensuring effective mental health support.

  • Couples Therapy:  We work with partners to build strong, healthy relationships, improve communication, navigate challenges with families of origin, or during the transition to parenting.  

  • Services for Kids and Teens:  We work with children and teens to support them in understanding themselves, developing peer support, overcoming depression and other concerns, and building trusting relationships.  

Why Therapy Matters for Our LGBTQIA+ Community

According to the 2018 National LGBTQIA+ Health Survey, over 70% of LGBTQIA+ individuals report experiencing mental health challenges due to societal stigma, discrimination, and internalized negative beliefs. At Cultivate Therapy, we understand the unique struggles faced by our queer clients and we offer therapists from the community who are also trained in tailored interventions to address your concerns.
