Affirmative therapy is for people who identify as members of the LGBTQ community. Affirmative therapists focus on the client’s relationship to and feelings about their sexual orientation and/or identity. Their role is to help the client understand and accept what they are thinking, feeling, and desiring as a natural part of who they are. Those who benefit the most from affirmative therapy are individuals whose overarching difficulties are related to sexual orientation and/or gender identity. The goal of affirmative therapy is to help LGBTQ individuals feel more comfortable with who they are. Affirmative therapy works in person or through teletherapy with a single person or in a group environment. People of all ages may benefit from affirmative therapy, and it works well with other types of treatment.
