All young people, regardless of sexual orientation or identity, deserve a safe and supportive environment in which to achieve their full potential.
– Dr. Harvey Milk
Identifying within the LGBTQIA2+ community can be a source of strength and pride, and it can also bring about unique challenges navigating prejudice, stigma, and other barriers to living authentically. Some challenges that LGBTQIA2+ folks face may include: the coming out process, navigating relationships, rejection from loved ones, depression, anxiety, suicidality, and trauma. Many LGBTQIA2+ folks face compounding levels of oppression, as their sexuality and gender identity also intersect with their race, religion, disability, and socio-economic class.
At Fairfax Place Therapy, we stand against injustice in all its forms, and we recognize the many harmful systems of oppression that are deeply embedded in our society. In our practice, we are committed to taking accountability in unpacking how we benefit from these systems, and to educate ourselves and promote a more just society. It is our goal to meet you where you are, and work together to create a brave space for you to move towards a place of healing and thriving.
