In-Person Support

The stress and isolation of the Covid-19 pandemic were especially isolating for many who identify as LGBTQ+.  The pandemic made it more difficult to connect with those having a similar experience to you. As a result, it may have meant you had more difficulty getting away from people who were less than validating.
 
For this reason, we know it’s more important than ever that you have an opportunity to feel connected and supported by people who understand you.  Therefore, we’re offering our Rainbow Group in person.  You won’t have to worry about being overheard by someone in your household.  The group will give you a true excuse to get out of the house.  And, you’ll be able to interact with people in a natural, genuine way.
 
There’s just something about interacting with people in real life that can help you feel seen, validated, and understood in a way you just can’t get using technology. Don’t get us wrong, we think technology is great. But, for this group, we know that meeting in person will make this an even more powerful experience.

What to Expect from an LGBTQ+ Support Group

You will have the ability to connect with other LGBTQ+ identifying individuals in your age group who are going through similar life issues and build a network of support. We offer in-person therapy groups for LGBTQ+ tweens and young adults. Our groups are facilitated by a licensed mental health professional. The benefits of an LGBTQ support group are numerous. But, perhaps one of the greatest benefits is the comfort it offers. Our support group for LGBTQ teens and young adults in West Bloomfield, MI is a safe place where you can speak your truth. We are here to listen, support, and encourage. 

 

Ultimately, the goal of our groups is to give participants the chance to share their stories and struggles in a judgment-free zone. Therapyology’s Rainbow Group can help you explore your identity, improve your self-esteem and make new friends. Together, we will learn new skills to help manage tough emotions, and find community with other kids and teens just like you. 

 

Not sure if the Rainbow Group is the right fit for you?

Perhaps, you would prefer to talk to a therapist individually. Maybe you’re not quite comfortable sharing with a group of your peers yet. Or, our group therapy sessions don’t work within your schedule. If this is the case, we hope you will consider LGBTQIA+ affirming therapy with a compassionate and skilled therapist at Therapyology.
