What is LGBTQIA+ mental health care?

Members of the LGBTQIA+ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersex, asexual, and others) community struggle with mental health concerns more frequently than the general population.

The Spectrum Behavioral Health team is here for LGBTQIA+ members every step of the way through life’s ups and downs. The licensed mental health specialists provide compassionate, nonjudgemental therapy and other services to help LGBTQIA+ members thrive.

Which concerns might members of the LGBTQIA+ community face?

People in the LGBTQIA+ community face many of the same challenges as non-LGBTQIA+ members encounter, including:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Substance misuse
  • Bipolar disorder
  • Eating disorders
  • Confusion
  • Low self-confidence
  • Acceptance by family or friends
  • Discrimination
  • Bullying
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)

Some LGBTQIA+ members also must deal with gender dysphoria and gender transitioning issues.

Having a therapist walk alongside you during life’s obstacles offers peace of mind, self-confidence, healing, mood improvements, and the best quality of life possible.

Am I a candidate for LGBTQIA+ therapy?

Anyone in the LGBTQIA+ community who encounters mental health concerns is a candidate for therapy or medication management at Spectrum Behavioral Health.

To determine which concerns you struggle with, an experienced psychologist asks questions to address your emotions, mood, thoughts, feelings, behaviors, lifestyle, and more. They then customize a treatment plan that best suits you.

What happens during LGBTQIA+ therapy?

Your Spectrum Behavioral Health specialist meets with you, often weekly, at one of the practice’s two offices or virtually from the comfort of your home. They get to know you by discussing the mental health concerns you could encounter.

The Spectrum Behavioral Health team offers psychotherapy and medication management. They can use cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT), eye-movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR), affirming therapy, and other psychotherapies to help you break through barriers and live your best life.

The practice provides individualized, couples, family, and group counseling based on your needs and treatment preferences. Your psychiatrist follows up as often as needed to ensure success and effectively manage medications. They also provide referrals to medical doctors if you’re a candidate for gender-affirming procedures.
