What does LGBTQ mean?

The acronym LGBTQ stands for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual,

Transgender and Queer/Questioning individuals. The

therapists at Lotus Counseling understand the need for such an

acronym, but also that the LGBTQ acronym can be limiting. 

It served a function as an umbrella for marginalized people

to whom rights were being denied, but it loses its efficacy

because of the nuanced nature of humanity.  As we become

more educated and expand the facts of our nature, we keep

adding letters to that acronym.  It was a great shield at one

point, but it's limiting because it does not take into account the

nuanced nature of humanity.  At some point, it's going to

have to spell: "WE ARE HUMAN."

 

That being said.......

Many people of the LGBTQ community suffer from discrimination and stereotyping on top

of mental health issues. It is often harder for these individuals to find the help needed to address multiple aspects of mental health and daily life struggles. Here at Lotus, we can assist in getting you 

where you want to be!  We believe that all humans should be treated with kindness and warmth in a non judgmental environment.

What LGBTQ and Allied clients can expect at Lotus Wellness

We offer a Safe and welcoming environment to all members of the LGBTQ and Allied community alike. Our clinicians work to provide an inviting atmosphere and a place to discuss life's difficult problems and questions, judgement free. 

Transgender Clients

 

For individuals who identify within the transgender community, we provide therapy to address transitional needs including those seeking hormone replacement therapy (HRT), gender reassignment surgery, connections to other LGTBQ-Allied affirming providers, and support involving transition within a small community like Grand Junction, Colorado. We also strive to work together with any additional family, friends, or support networks you would like included to fully address any and all mental health needs.
