Union Square Practice has a team dedicated to LGBTQ mental health concerns. The LGBTQ community is prone to a unique set of mental health challenges, based on sexual and gender identities. Sadly, stigmas, prejudices, biases, and discrimination exist and can cause complex issues best addressed by LGBTQ-focused mental health experts.
Some common LGBTQ mental health issues we address are:
- Anxiety and/or depression
- Sexual Orientation
- Gender Identity
- Gender reassignment
- Family and friends acceptance and/or rejection
- Substance abuse
While all of our practice is made up of LBGTQ affirming clinicians, USP has two clinicians who have a special focus and passion for working with the LBGTQ community. See bios for Matt Buttigieg and Kate Miller.
