Although a person’s sexual or romantic orientation or gender identity may not be a source of distress, people who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, questioning, asexual, or any other orientation or gender identity may find that the social stigma of living as a minority is a source of stress or anxiety. Despite the rapidly growing cultural acceptance of diverse sexual and romantic orientations and gender identifications, oppression, discrimination, and marginalization of LGBTQ people persist. Coping with discrimination and oppression, coming out to one’s family, and sorting out an “authentic” sense of self in the face of social expectations and pressures can lead to higher levels of depression, anxiety, substance use, and other mental health concerns for LGBTQ people. Having someone to talk to and listen to your concerns can help in a time of need.

Do you have a learning difficulty? A learning difficulty may also be referred to as a learning disability which can be described as an issue with the brain's ability to process information. Individuals who have a learning difficulty may not learn in the same way or as quickly as their peers, and they might find certain aspects of learning, such as the development of basic skills, to be challenging. Because learning difficulties cannot be cured, their effects may impact an individual's performance throughout life: academically, in the workplace, and in relationships and daily life. Counseling can be helpful when those with a learning difficulty feel shy, anxious, or otherwise find it challenging to express themselves to others. Because emotional distress can occur as a result, talking through these anxieties in therapy may prove beneficial.

Are you transitioning from a teenager to a young adult and you find things overwhelming? Are you finding it difficult to stay organized or manage your schedule or time? Do you find life difficult? Are you not “fitting in” with your peers? Do you have questions about sexuality developmental concerns, school or career challenges, family differences or life? Young adults may often find the support of a therapist to be helpful during the transition from adolescence into adulthood, especially if they experience mental health concerns or other difficulties as they become accustomed to new expectations, roles, and responsibilities. However, a low rate of professional help-seeking has been identified as a barrier to treatment for many young adults. Counseling at this stage in life can bring light on future endeavors and solutions to handle situations.
