You Deserve To Be Seen
It is easy to feel alienated and lonely when you feel like you are different from everyone else.
While others may want to isolate you for your differences, you should know that being unique is
what makes you an individual. Everyone deserves a space where they can be comfortable to
show their most inner selves and be celebrated for who they are. That is why Brighter Sky
Counseling is dedicated to creating a space where those in the LGBTQIA+ community can feel
secure enough to be open and vulnerable about their experiences so that they can begin to heal
A Sense Of Belonging Is Crucial
Identifying yourself in the LGBTQIA+ community means sharing a sense of belonging and
camaraderie with those in your environment, but for many, it was not always easy to rely on
others. Those who experience discrimination, loneliness, or imposter syndrome due to their
sexual identity may want to consider seeking therapy with a trained professional where they can
release the negativity they have faced and begin to truly express themselves however they
please. Even when you dare to embrace your community, there may still be obstacles in your
way that keep you from living the life of your dreams. At Brighter Sky Counseling, we make sure
that you are allowed to feel your emotions, communicate your worries and overcome your fears
without the panic of feeling judged.
What Does LGBTQIA+ Therapy Look Like?
A session with Brighter Sky Counseling will demonstrate how you can compassionately and
empathetically identify yourself in a way that makes you feel seen and validated. Below are
some of the areas that therapy can help with:
● Imposter Syndrome: Whether you are out or not, feeling like you don’t belong can cause
a hindrance to your confidence and self-worth
● Identity Struggle: Understanding the difference between identities and what feels most
right to you
● Lifestyle Changes: Coming out can mean finally owning who you want to be, which may
include wanting to change areas in your life to better reflect who you are inside
● Boundaries: Creating healthy and new boundaries with those around you to keep
yourself safe and sane in your new identity
● Expressing Yourself: If you are facing personal obstacles and are unsure of how you
would like to express yourself, therapy can teach you new ways to open your shell
Find Your Place In This World
Finding an environment where you can be yourself and thrive is difficult for some, but never
impossible. Through the right resources, guidance, and dedication you can begin to be the
person you are on the inside and leave behind the negativity of pretending to be someone else.
