Counseling for the LGBTQ+ Community
Mental health is a crucial component to overall health and wellness. Each person experiences emotional ups and downs throughout life. For the LGBTQ+ community, there is often an added layer of challenge due to prejudice, stigma, or biases. According to the National Alliance for Mental Illness (NAMI), the LGBTQ+ community is three times more likely to experience mental health concerns such as Major Depression or Generalized Anxiety Disorder.
Holistic Wellness Practice supports equality and acceptance by providing a safe space to every identity. We believe that gender identity, expression and sexual orientation are essential to shaping who we are, how we are seen and how we move through the world.
