Affirmative Therapy for Sexual Minorities

Some Arroyos psychologists are experts in treating the specialized needs of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Intersex, and Queer (LGBTIQ) patients and their loved ones. Treatment includes highlighting how social norms have contributed to a disintegration of the true self. This form of therapy is appropriate for those who experience pressure to conform to societal expectations at the cost of disloyalty to self and loved ones, as well as those who are coping with coming out, professional roles, and a lack of social support.
