Are you experiencing discomfort with your identity, and need confidential guidance or support?
Despite increasing acceptance of diverse populations in the SF Bay Area, the LGBTQQI (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, Questioning, Intersex) community continues to experience unique social pressures and expectations. These pressures often present additional concerns for individuals who are also members of other minority groups.
Developing an identity with confidence, coping with social marginalization—including from within the LGBTQQI community—and coming out to family and friends frequently lead to depression, anxiety, and doubt among LGBTQQI individuals. These factors often create specific and complex challenges for LGBTQQI couples.
Be proud of who you are.
At Wellness Ways, a licensed psychologist works with you to explore and reinforce your identity and personal development with nonjudgment and validation. This is done through Affirmative counseling, which embraces a positive view of LGBTQQI identities and explores negative societal influences. This approach also acknowledges that LGBTQQI clients—like any other client—may struggle with symptoms independent of their orientation.
Wellness Ways provides you with an open environment to share in conversation and acceptance, complete with personalized attention from a licensed psychologist, a private seating area to talk, and external white noise machines for enhanced privacy.
