The Affordable Therapy Network has tons of LGBTQ Therapists and Allies who provide sliding scale options and lower cost rates.
When looking for a therapist it’s important to consider what your needs are. Consider things such as affordability, training, lived experience, availability, and anything else that is important to you.
Many people prefer to work with a therapist who has specialized experience in what they are looking for. This might come in the form of training or lived experience. For instance, someone who is looking for support around issues that are specific to the LGBTQ+ community, might want to find an LQBTQ+ therapist who understand their needs.
Always start with a consultation. This is your opportunity to get a feel for the therapist and ask any questions that are important to you. If it doesn’t quite feel right, set up a consultation with someone else.
Wishing you all the best on your mental health journey!
