Looking for a therapist is hard; looking for an LGBTQ+ therapist is even harder.
Long before we were therapists, we faced the same struggles you did. Looking for LGBTQ+ affirming therapy, but really wishing there was an easy way to find a therapist who themselves identified as LGBTQ+.
Shared lived experience isn’t everything, but it sure would have ruled out some problematic situations encountered with well-intentioned “affirming” therapists who had little interaction with our community outside of the therapy office.
We are a team of LGBTQ+ therapists focused on the unique mental health needs of our communities in Virginia. We offer online counseling and social support opportunities, and share queer & trans wellness resources.
Our therapists come to QueerWell with lived and learned experience. Every QueerWell therapist is committed to providing services based in mental health models that have proven to help people navigate the emotional challenges that come with the seasons and storms of life.
