Denver Family Institute

LGBTQ+ Counseling

Individuals who identify themselves as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender or queer/questioning sometimes face challenges unique to the LGBTQ+ community.  Although there is a much wider cultural acceptance of the LGBTQ+ community than there was twenty years ago, discrimination can still be found in Denver, Colorado. Rejection by friends and family is a very real fear facing people coming out for the first time. 

Additionally, sometimes LGBTQ+ youth and adults face violence, bullying, or hate crimes. All of these factors can lead to stress, depression, anxiety, identity issues, and poor self-esteem. Seeing a qualified mental health professional can be enormously beneficial for an individual facing any emotional stress. Therapists can offer strategies for coming out, ways to deal with discrimination, and help to address any other issues faced by a member of the LGBTQ+ community, including relationships, marriage and parenting. 

Denver Family Institute also offers services specific for transgender and gender non-conforming individuals. 

DFI is open and affirming to people of all gender identities and is committed to ensuring a safe space for all clients. There are gender neutral bathrooms available at DFI’s main office location on S. Yosemite St.

LGBTQIA+ Affirming Statement

Denver Family Institute affirms all identities in the LGBTQIA+ community and engages in practices to ensure our entire community (faculty, students, staff, clients, and interns) experiences DFI as LGBTQIA-informed.
