The Unique Aspects of Palatine, IL LGBTQ Therapy

Lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (or questioning) individuals may experience depression, anxiety, trauma, and other common challenges. Therapy can address these things; however, there might also be additional unique struggles such as:

Gender dysphoria, a condition in which gender identity and expression is not the same as their gender assigned at birth.

  • Sexual identity issues, in which they are questioning their sexual identity. 
  • Abuse, discriminiation, and other challenges that LGBTQ individuals might face
  • Non-accepting family members of friends
  • Stigmas at school, work, or other environments

In addition to the above, LGBTQ individuals might have faced hate crimes, bullying, or have lost loved ones after coming out. The emotional impact of these events can be extremely challenging. LGBTQ therapy in Palatine, IL can help to process these events. 

A compassionate, supportive therapist with experience in these LGBTQ challenges share concerns about the stigmas and social issues associated with the community. At the Lotus Wellness Center we want to help you find the support you are seeking, while assisting you in reaching your desired goals.

Will LGBTQ Therapy Try to Change Me?

There is some debate about nature vs. nurture and whether sexuality or gender is shaped by biological determinations or the environment. Conversion therapies tend to be aimed at changing the cognitions of a person who might have the same-gender attraction, or may identify with a gender different to that assigned at birth. The Lotus Wellness Center does not practice conversion or reparative therapies. We also believe they are not ethical and go against our own standards of holistic therapy. We don’t focus on what “caused” you to be gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, queer, or gender-nonconforming. We also don’t believe there needs to be something changed or controlled. Rather we believe you are who you are. You are an incredible person and we won’t try to change that.
