LGBTQIA+ Therapy Washington DC

We help you effectively face your struggles by recognizing and leveraging your strengths.


Our goal is to help you feel that your unique experiences are understood.


We welcome you wherever you are in your journey.

Being gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, nonbinary, or queer comes with unique experiences, struggles, and strengths. You may be coming to terms with your identity, or have soldiered through the process long ago.

Specialized Help Every Step of the Way

It may be difficult for others to understand the challenges you face about your identity and experiences, which only makes things worse. We get it. We pride ourselves on providing specialized and expert therapy that you need from our gay therapists, lesbian therapists, nonbinary therapist, or gay-affirming therapists.

Gay men, lesbians, bisexuals, transgender persons, nonbinary people, and a rainbow of queer individuals seek us out when they are struggling with:

  • Finding increased acceptance
  • Navigating dating and relationships
  • Transition-related concerns
  • Messy family relationships
  • Career complications
  • Substance use problems
  • Lack of sexual intimacy


Your Experience Understood

We have extensive knowledge and expertise working with the LGBTQIA+ community that helps us better understand your unique experiences and strengths. As gay therapists, lesbian therapists, nonbinary therapists, queer therapists, and affirming therapists we contribute to making it easy for you to explore your concerns with us.

We pay particular attention to matching you with a therapist with whom you will feel comfortable. Our goal is to help you move beyond feeling stuck and get you to a feeling great.

We hear from our LGBTQIA+ clients that they are relieved not to have to translate their experiences with us.
