    Drug Addiction and Abuse in the LGBTQ Community: discusses why so many LGBTQ individuals abuse drugs and gives a list of helpful resources.

    Looking at the Landscape of LGBTQ and Gay-Friendly: Rehabs provides statistics on LGBTQ populations & addiction, where to find an LGBTQ-friendly rehab center and a substance abuse self-assessment.

    LGBTQ Rehab Centers for Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, or Transgender A medically reviewed guide to help find treatment specialized for the LGBTQ community.

    Our organization also hosts free virtual support and online addiction meetings that many LGBTQ individuals use to help support their recovery, or if interested in finding treatment in a specific location, our directory would be a valuable tool for them as well.

    It’s easy to feel like you have little to no control. Those of us belonging to marginalized groups spend every day living in a society that was explicitly not built for us. As if systemic problems and oppression aren’t enough, many of us have individual concerns that generate a huge impact on our day-to-day functioning and vitality. With all the thoughts and emotions it can generate, having a human brain is simultaneously an exhilarating and exhausting experience. While we work to change the world we live in, we also need tools to live worthwhile and fulfilling lives in the present. That is where therapy comes in. My absolute favorite thing as a therapist is helping clients find and reclaim their agency, to create meaningful change and live a fulfilling life. I love working with other members of the LGBTQIA+ community and have expertise in topics of orientation and gender identity. I strive for racial equity and cultural competence in my practice. I specialize in stress, anxiety, and related concerns. I utilize methods such as Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and hypnotherapy that help you define your core values and set/achieve your goals, and ERP to treat OCD.
