Congratulations on making the important decision to begin working with a new psychotherapist. At IntraSpectrum Counseling, we strive to create an affirming and responsive “getting started” process that makes it easy. We’ll help you navigate your health benefits and connect you with an IntraSpectrum Counseling therapist who will be a good match for you, all as efficiently as possible. Each of our therapists is educated and trained, and has experience working with LGBTQ+ clients. And the information you share on our Inquiry Form (such as the type of therapy you’re looking for; the issues you want to address; info about your identities, experiences & preferences) will help us determine which of our therapists might be a good match for your needs. You are also welcome to request a specific therapist on the Form; we’ll do our best to accommodate based on availability.
We recognize it’s also important to find a clinician who is a good match, personally. Feeling comfortable and being able to connect on a personal level with your therapist can increase the likelihood that you’ll reach your goals for therapy together. We hope the information on this page offers some information and insight into the process, and gives you support to take that next step on your mental health journey. If you are still conducting research, we offer our best advice about that below, too.
