LGBTQ+ Inclusive & Affirming Therapy


Agate Counseling is a proud provider of best-practice LGBTQ+ affirming counseling services to teens and adults.  


This can focus on typical concerns addressed in therapy such as:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety/stress/perfectionism
  • Grief and loss
  • Traumatic experiences
  • Dating and relationships
  • Substance use/misuse
  • Chronic illness


Therapy for LGBTQ+ folx can also be a safe space to explore and/or better understand your sexuality and/or gender identity:

  • Coming out
  • Gender dysphoria
  • Transition
  • Feelings of guilt, shame, and/or stigma related to sexual orientation or gender identity
  • Internalized homophobia/self-hatred
  • Family tension, conflict, or rejection after coming out


Therapy for parents and caregivers of LGBTQ+ individuals can address issues such as:


  • Questions about your child’s coming out you may not be able to get answered anywhere else or are afraid to ask
  • Learning about various aspects/struggles of the coming out process
  • Learning how to support your loved one in their coming out experience
  • Learning to cope with your own confusion, distress, grief, anxiety, and fears over your child’s coming out as LGBTQ+
  • Navigating your own coming out experience in a way that honors your child’s privacy and process
  • Resource identification and connection for your child and your family for needs outside of counseling (for example: Peer support, affirming counseling for your child, or transgender-competent medical care including primary care, gender care, etc.)
