You may have anxieties and insecurities about your LGBTQ identity that are affecting your life, and your relationships. Your adolescent child may often face shame or rejection at school, at home or in the community. You or your child sadly also face a higher risk of bullying. Stigma induced shame and guilt often results in depression, anxiety, and/or persistent emotional upset.
The more support you or your child have at home, at school, from friends, from their therapist the less stress you/he/she will experience and the easier it will be for you or your child to experience the peace and happiness that comes from knowing your/their value and lovability.
Inner Light Counseling has several experienced LGBTQ therapists on staff who are both experienced and knowledgeable about the real struggles a LGBTQ individual faces. They care and they want to help.
