What philosophy sets LGBTQ+ services apart?

The team at Uncover Mental Health Counseling PLLC is highly trained in cultural competency and LGBTQ+ challenges. But behind their training and experience lie a deep philosophy that guides the care they provide.

They’re dedicated to embracing everyone’s many intersecting identities (race, class, sex, gender, sexuality, age) and understanding how these differences affect each person’s sense of self and how they relate to others.

Embracing each person’s nuanced identity involves reconciling and connecting diverse cultural characteristics by perceiving their similarities. At the same time, recognizing and valuing unique differences allows each person to complement and enrich one another, replacing antagonism with acceptance.

Most of their therapists identify as therapists of color, giving them the insight and perspective to fully empathize with each person’s situation.

No matter what challenges you face as a member of the LGBTQ+ community, the team at Uncover Mental Health Counseling PLLC is prepared to stand with you and offer the therapy you need to overcome them and thrive.
