Therapy for LGBTQIA+ Folks

Are you feeling disconnected, uncomfortable, or misunderstood?

Do you struggle with self-acceptance, belonging, and concerns related to your

relationships, sexuality, and gender?

Dani Sullivan, MSW, therapist and founder of Intentions Therapy specializes in supporting members of the LGBTQIA+ community in exploring their identity, building confidence,

and empowering themselves to lead their most authentic life.

Members of the LGBTQIA+ community come from diverse communities and have a wide array of life

experiences. Many people seek support after growing up a world where it was hard to

find accurate representations of themselves in their schools, communities, and the

media. Some queer folks find it difficult to express themselves authentically, feel

uncomfortable in their bodies and their lives, and are afraid of vulnerability.

If you are someone who identifies outside of the heteronormative (male-female) relationship, and

are bisexual, gay lesbian, pansexual, or any other sexual orientation*, you may struggle

with finding therapy or counseling that is affirming of your romantic and sexual

attraction, you may deal with social or relational stress, and depression. Know that you are not alone and that Dani Sullivan works with clients in exploring their relationships, clarifying their boundaries and seeking affirmation.

If you identify as trans, gender non-conforming, non-binary, agender, or are exploring your gender identity in some way*, you may benefit from working with a counselor who understands

your complexity and is seeking to provide affirmative care. Dani Sullivan, MSW, has worked with members of the trans* community as a counselor, educator, and advocate.

Many LGBTQIA+ folks seek a counselor or therapist, and if any of these issues

resonate with you, counseling with Dani Sullivan, MSW can help:

  • You are looking to explore who you are and how you want to show up in your relationships

  • Fear of letting people in gets in the way of your genuine relationships

  • You have questions about your gender identity, the way you express yourself

  • You feel sad, frustrated, angry, and stuck

  • You experience shame as a result of your identities, this may lead to isolation

  • Your body doesn’t feel like home, you’re uncomfortable with how you look and feel

  • Confusion about your sexual and romantic attraction affects your confidence

  • You struggle with internalized homophobia or transphobia

  • You would like to process traumatic experiences of discrimination, stereotyping, harassment, bullying, or physical/verbal/sexual abuse

  • You are struggling to accept yourself, or find acceptance with your family and friends

Many queer people struggle feeling safe and affirmed in healthcare settings. Intentions Therapy prioritizes inclusivity of all, and our services can support you in reclaiming your sense of self.
