Sushma Cheturvedula

Licensed Professional Counselor, MS, LPC
I'd be there for someone dealing with LGBT issues by making sure they have a comfortable and supportive space to talk about what they're going through. We'd talk about any tough emotions or past traumas related to their identity or coming out journey, helping them figure things out and feel accepted. If they're struggling with PTSD from discrimination or past traumas, I'd help them manage those symptoms too. When it comes to relationships, we'd work on navigating the ups and downs, dealing with communication issues, and finding support from others in the LGBT community. The main goal is to help them feel confident in who they are, boost their mental health, and build strong, meaningful connections.

Chicago, Illinois therapist: Tara Thompson, licensed professional counselor
LGBT Issues

Tara Thompson

Licensed Professional Counselor, MS, LPC
LGBT issues can have a significant impact on individuals dealing with addictions, relationship issues, or depression. Someone who is struggling with their sexual orientation or gender identity may experience discrimination, rejection, or internalized shame, which can contribute to feelings of isolation and exacerbate existing mental health concerns. As a therapist specializing in these cases, I would provide a supportive and affirming space for individuals to explore their feelings and experiences. I would help them navigate the challenges associated with their identity, such as coming out to loved ones or dealing with societal stigma. This might involve providing resources and referrals to LGBT-affirming support groups or organizations, facilitating discussions about healthy relationships and boundaries within the context of their sexual orientation or gender identity, and offering validation and encouragement as they work towards self-acceptance and empowerment.

LGBT Issues

Jamie Warren

Therapist, LSW
Whether I'm working with fellow LGBTQ+ or allied clients, my own queerness offers me a unique perspective: a rejection of the notion that there is a way love or a relationship is meant to look, an acceptance that everything can be fluid–especially when it comes to human feelings and identity, and most importantly, a lack of judgment.

Chicago, Illinois therapist: Philip Cooke, psychologist
LGBT Issues

Philip Cooke

Psychologist, PhD
Providing LGBT-affirming psychotherapy and assessment services has been a core part of my training, research, and clinical practice for the past 8 years. My doctoral research and post-doctoral fellowship focused on the psychological well-being of queer men and LGBTQ-affirmative health care. I continue to teach in graduate programs and provide consultation on working with LGBTQ-identified individuals and couples. I have substantial expertise in the psychological effects of discrimination, the intersection of race and gender/sexuality, identity exploration, ethical nonmonogamy, psychosocial and medical gender transition, queer men’s issues, and queer relationship concerns. As a clinician, my practice has consistently focused on the needs of queer people, particularly those who may be on the margins of the LGBTQ community, including trans and nonbinary folx, non-monosexual people (e.g., bisexual, pansexual), queer people of color, and polyamorous and non-monogamous individuals and relationships. I work to understand the effects of other identities (race, class, ability, age, etc.) on my patient’s concerns and tailor treatment accordingly.
