How will I know therapy is right for me as a LGBTQIA individual?
Coming out to family, friends and at work over and over can be exhausting and painful. Having a relationship with a BeWELL therapist is important, as we can help you process the thoughts and feelings that come with the microaggressions you face daily. A BeWELL therapist will always be non-bias and able to sit with any feeling or thought in the room. She will help navigate relationships, career and family and any of the challenges that comes with these interpersonal dynamics.
What can I expect in therapy?
Therapy is a place to freely express yourself, be heard and understood in an open and judgement-free relationship. You and your therapist will set goals, examine negative thought patterns, examine how your history is affecting your present life and together you will create new thoughts and outcomes. Do you ever wonder how you have that one friend who seems to draw great luck? Maybe you have another who seems to draw the opposite? We’ll help you examine your thought patterns and history to explore how you can create ample positivity in your life.
What types of therapy do BeWELL therapists employ?
BeWELL therapists use eclectic psychodynamic techniques, often times layering in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) techniques to support you in making the changes you want.

Understanding how your thoughts, feelings, and behaviors influence each other is paramount to your success.
