lgbtiq - Beyond CBT: Elizabeth Dear, MFT, LCADC


Being lesbian, bisexual, transgender, gay, intersex, or queer (or questioning) brings unique challenges in the often prejudiced and intolerant mainstream American culture. Although in the big picture we need cultural change, many people need help holding onto or exploring their sexual orientation, examining internalized homophobia, managing external discrimination, or negotiating decisions about whether, when, or how to come out. I offer a receptive place to reflect and examine perspectives about partner relationships, coming out, spirituality, family relations, and coping with prejudice.
