LGBTQA Support Group

This is an interpersonal process group for members of the LGBTQA community, including allies and those questioning their sexual orientation or gender identity, who want to learn more about themselves and their interactions with others. In group, members will have the opportunity to share common struggles, gain support, and give and receive feedback in a safe environment. Group members may be dealing with a wide range of concerns, including coming out, connecting with the LGBTQA community, depression, anxiety, relationship concerns, and other concerns related to their LGBTQA experiences.
