Answers to Common Questions

What is LGBTQ+ counseling?

LGBTQ+ counseling is a type of therapy that focuses on issues specifically related to the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer/questioning community. It provides a safe space to explore and understand one's identity, relationships, and experiences.

How can LGBTQ+ counseling help me?

It can help with a range of issues including identity exploration, self-acceptance, dealing with discrimination or homophobia, relationship challenges, and mental health concerns like anxiety or depression, among others.

Is my sexual orientation or gender identity just a phase?

Sexual orientation and gender identity are core aspects of a person's identity. While exploration and questioning are normal, they are not simply 'phases'. Counseling can help you understand and embrace your true self.

What are the costs associated with counseling or therapy sessions at Foundations?

At Foundations, each counseling or therapy session costs $200, or you can opt for a double session at $360. We also provide additional savings through our Healing Journey Packages, which are prepaid sessions available in bundles of 5, 10, 15, or 20, offering discounts that increase with the number of sessions purchased.

Does Foundations accept Insurance?

Foundations will provide any necessary documentation for you to submit for reimbursement with your insurance company. This approach ensures greater privacy, avoids mandatory diagnoses, offers more therapist choices, and promotes tailored session lengths, facilitating a personalized therapeutic experience without external constraints or documentation shared with insurance companies.

What if I need to reschedule my counseling session?

There is no charge for any session cancelled at least 48 hours prior to the scheduled appointment time.

Are you available in the evenings or on weekends?

Foundations offers flexible early morning, daytime, evening, and Saturday appointments. Please contact us at 970-227-2770 to arrange a session that fits your schedule.

Will my counselor try to change my sexual orientation or gender identity?

No. Ethical counselors respect and support your identity. The goal of counseling is not to change who you are, but to help you understand and accept yourself.

How do I know if I need LGBTQ+ counseling?

If you're facing challenges related to your LGBTQ+ identity, experiencing mental health issues, or just need someone to talk to who understands, counseling could be beneficial.

Can LGBTQ+ counseling help with transitioning?

Yes, it can provide support and guidance throughout the process of transitioning, including discussing options, coping with challenges, and facilitating a healthier transition.

Is LGBTQ+ counseling confidential?

Can I talk about issues not related to my LGBTQ+ identity?

Yes, you can talk about any issue in counseling, not just those directly related to LGBTQ+ issues. Counselors are equipped to help with a wide range of topics.

Do I need to identify as LGBTQ+ to receive this counseling?

No, you don't have to label your identity. Counseling is about supporting you, regardless of how you identify.
