LGBTQ+ Individual and Couples Therapy

LGBTQ+ individuals and couples can experience similar relationship issues as straight folks, such as:

 

  • difficulty starting and maintaining relationships

  • issues with intimacy

  • life and money stressors

  • difficulty communicating

  • family conflict and trauma

  • self-esteem

  • depression

  • anxiety

But often with the added layer of discrimination, oppression, and marginalization. It can be difficult to find a therapist who feels safe and aware of how sociopolitical factors can influence your relationship with yourself and others.

 

At Lone Wolf, we have a team of therapists that want to help you live a life that is psychologically, relationally, and sexually satisfying. Whether you are just starting to explore or question your gender, sexual or romantic orientation, or have been out for quite some time.

 

We want to create a space that affirms all the unique parts that make you, you, and explore your relational self!

LGBTQ+ Individual Relationship Therapy

LGBT individual relationship therapy may include exploration of your sexual, gender, or romantic orientation, navigating difficult family relationships, processing discrimination and trauma, exploring relationship patterns, finding community, increasing self-esteem, managing mental health, or creating healthier relationships.

When you are a part of a marginalized group their are unique stressors that impact your relationship with yourself and others. The pressure to conform to identities that don't fit and the need to come out to people who don't understand can make it difficult to find your true authentic self.

This can make the difficult task of finding a romantic partner even more difficult. Our therapists at Lone Wolf can help you improve your relationship with yourself, navigate family relationships, and explore how to connect with others in a healthy, intimate way. 

Are you connected and confident about yourself and your identity, but are still struggling to form healthy long-lasting relationships? Individual relationship therapy for LGBTQ+ folks can help you explore the roots of your relationship issues and the unhealthy patterns you are stuck in. In this space, you will feel empowered, safe, and understood so that you can freely explore how to improve your relational health. 

LGBTQ+ Couples Counseling

LGBTQ+ couples typically aren't coming into counseling to discuss conflicts around gender or sexual orientation. The distinction between straight and LGBTQ+ couples therapy is rooted in biases and external discrimination LGBTQ+ couples may face.

Most couples therapy models were developed and researched with heterosexual couples in mind. It can be difficult to find a couples therapist with knowledge and expertise in LGBTQ+ affirming couples therapy.

Distinct External Factors Impacting LGBTQ+ Relationships



While many relationship issues can look similar on the surface, LGBTQ+ couples face external factors that straight couples do not encounter, and treating LGBTQ+ couples as the same as straight couples can be a great disservice to the couples therapy experience.

It is important for therapists to understand your gender and sexual experience, and our therapists at Lone Wolf adapt more traditional couples therapy models to better incorporate your individual relationship design. 

Common topics discussed in LGBTQ+ couples counseling sessions:

  • Coming out and openness

  • Navigating differing gender or sexual orientation within the relationship 

  • Navigating a change in gender or sexual orientation within the relationship

  • Sexual health and satisfaction 

  • Family acceptance 

  • Prejudice and discrimination 

  • Spirituality 

  • Conflict resolution

  • Communication

  • Intimacy and affection 

  • Infidelity 

  • Trust 

  • Family
