If you're part of the LGBTQ+ community and experiencing anxiety & shame, I'm a queer therapist here to help you heal & build self-confidence
Licensed Professional Counselor in Portland, OR
Anxiety can feel like you're "losing it," "going crazy" and wondering if you'll ever feel grounded again. When it's intense you feel physically sick and your mind fixates on all of the worries in your world. While these experiences may lead to feeling alone, there is help and hope that you can feel better. With counseling, I have seen people have incredible breakthroughs in understanding, managing and changing their relationship with anxiety.
Homophobia-related trauma can leave you feeling shame, isolated and unsafe even in spaces thought to be welcoming for the LGBTQ community. Seeking help can be a series of frustrations trying to establish a connection not knowing if it is safe to open up about experiences with anti-LGBTQ violence or abuse. As a queer therapist, I want to understand your story and walk beside you as you take the bold steps to heal in an affirming space.
