Support for the LGBTQ+ Community

Techniques - to live an authentic life
Love is Love

I want to come out, but I’m afraid.

We’ve come a long way as a society in terms of accepting and advocating for our LGBTQ+ community. That doesn’t mean you feel safe or certain about your decision to come out to friends and family. In fact, lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersex, nonbinary, and gender non-conforming (LGBTQI+) youth are at a higher risk of being bullied on school property and online than their straight peers. As a result, many LGBTQ+ people – young and old – feel unsafe expressing their authentic self.

I want to be an ally to my LGBTQ+ loved one, but I don’t know how.

If you’re here, it’s because you want your loved one to know that you love them unconditionally. You want them to know that you will support them and listen to them. But you may also be afraid of the struggles ahead of them. You may be feeling grief or confusion about how to encourage them in healthy, appropriate ways, especially if you have never experienced what they are going through.

Accepting and healing your authentic self.

Whether you’re finding your own voice as an LGBTQ+ person or you’re seeking ways to support a loved one, Pride Therapy can help you get in touch with your most authentic self. For people who identify as LGBTQ+, this may mean exploring your authentic sexual orientation or gender expression. It may also mean learning to identify and manage social pressures and the mental health issues like depression and anxiety that come with those pressures. For allies, Pride Therapy is a way to come to greater understanding of your loved ones’ struggles and to identify your own most authentic ways of supporting them. In Pride Therapy, we use the following modalities to move past obstacles to your authentic development:

  • energy medicine,
  • intuitive life guidance, and
  • Akashic records access.
