IntraSpectrum Counseling’s Support During The Derek Chauvin Trial

By March 12, 2021October 14th, 2022No Comments

IntraSpectrum Counseling recognizes the Derek Chauvin trial is an extremely stressful and emotional time for many individuals. For some people, reading and watching the trial is triggering and retraumatizing, and we recognize that some people may want to talk about this while others may not. We want all of our clients and team members, especially our Black and African-American clients and team members, to know and feel that IntraSpectrum Counseling is a safe space.

We also recognize that many of our QTBIPOC family may not know how to best be supported at this time. Please know that those feelings and emotions are valid. You do not need — and are not expected — to know or explain to others how to support you. We are here for you, and we hold space for you.


IntraSpectrum Counseling is Chicago’s leading psychotherapy practice dedicated to the LGBTQ+ community, and we strive to provide the highest quality mental health care for multicultural, kink, polyamorous, and intersectional issues.
