For many in our community, it's important they know their therapist not only accepts them, but has a deep personal understanding for the unique aspects of their life shaped by the identities they hold.
On a personal level:
Several of our therapists know what it's like to move through the world as members of the LGBT community. Although we may use our personal experiences to better collaborate with you, we honor that your own unique identities may create an experience that is different than our own.
On a professional level:
As psychologists, professors of human sexuality, and LGBT activists, we're dedicated to remaining knowledgeable and affirming of experiences of gender, sexuality, and relationship structure unique to the LGBT community. Our early life experiences are unique, our journeys towards self-actualization are unique, and the ways in which we love one another and navigate our relationships are unique. It's important your therapist knows this.
