Why LGBTQ Affirming Care Matters

“Affirming” is the process of helping you feel comfortable with your truth. It is especially important for those in the gay, lesbian, queer, and transgender communities, along with those questioning and unclear about who they are or who they are meant to be.

But true affirming care goes beyond mere acceptance.

It is designed to validate, respect, and honor each individual’s self-identified sexual orientation and gender identity. This approach encompasses a broad range of mental health services aimed at multiple facets of a client’s well-being. This includes common mental health challenges such as stress, anxiety, and depression, as well as matters more specific to the LGBTQ community.

Treatment Modalities in LGBT Affirming Care

At Flourish Psychology, we employ a range of evidence-based treatment modalities specifically designed to offer comprehensive support:


Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) – Effective for addressing anxiety, depression, and stress management.


Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) – Useful in cases where self-acceptance and value alignment are key goals.


Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) – Offers skills in emotional regulation and interpersonal effectiveness.

We’re here to talk. We’re here to learn. We’re here to help you through your trauma, support you in navigating your social/work life, and much more.

Core Focus Areas in LGBTQ Affirming Care in Brooklyn

The fear of prejudice or misunderstanding often prevents individuals from seeking the help they need.

Flourish Psychology works to eliminate these barriers through an empathetic, evidence-based approach that focuses solely on meeting each individual’s unique needs without judgment.

We provide:


Self-Acceptance and Validation – This involves counteracting internalized biases and promoting a positive sense of self.


Societal and Cultural Impact – Understanding how societal, religious, or cultural norms may affect one’s mental well-being.


Overall Mental Health – Addressing common and individualized mental health challenges that are either directly or indirectly related to one’s identity.

We live in a society now that often struggles to allow people to be themselves. But when there is a disconnect with who you are and how you present, there can often be poor life satisfaction and greater risk of developing ongoing mental health struggles.

Individualized, Evidence-Based Treatment Approach

By employing evidence-based treatment strategies, Flourish Psychology ensures a highly personalized therapeutic experience. Treatment plans are devised post an exhaustive initial assessment, taking into account your medical history, present concerns, and future treatment goals.
