What is your approach to counseling LGBTQIA+ patients/members?

Whether you are seeking gender-affirming therapy or just someone who understands the LGBTQIA+ community, Talkspace believes that the power of therapy is amplified when you see a provider who truly understands you. Many of our providers are affirmative therapists who support LGBTQIA+ individuals by acknowledging the ways that cisnormative and heteronormative assumptions can promote stigma, discrimination, transphobia, and homophobic behaviors. All of our therapists practice therapy from a space of self-awareness and respect. We do not condone conversion therapy or the practice of attempting to change an individual's sexual orientation, gender identity, or gender expression.

We stand behind our practices, and if alerted about any concerns, we have a thorough process to investigate and take action with providers who do not meet our standards, including additional education/training, corrective action plans, and termination if necessary.
