Taking the step towards recovery, self-discovery and growth can be a difficult first step, and now that you’ve committed to this journey, you’re ready to tackle life and all that comes with it so that you can live life to its fullest.

One thing that shouldn’t be hard is finding the right therapist for you. One that understands, affirms, and is competent in supporting your needs.

We’re here to offer a safe and non-judgmental space for you to be you. A space that is free from micro aggressions, discrimination, and judgement. A space that is open, affirming, and ready for you.

Counseling offers a safe space to explore things in life – the good, the bad, and the in-between . Counseling is a healthy and self-caring way to work on yourself and learn better ways to handle your thoughts, feelings, relationships, home, and work life. Together we can look at barriers that are keeping you from creating the change you are seeking and find the best ways to implement those changes. We can provide a space for you to be unapologetically yourself, where you can grow and become who it is you envision for yourself. 

Because when you don’t feel like you can be who you are, you might find yourself going through the motions of your day rather than actively living and enjoying it. Life brings all kinds of situations our way. Sometimes we encounter stressful or painful situations that leave you feeling anxious, depressed, and lonely. Sometimes you find yourself overcome with joy and you’re left wondering how you can make more space for happiness in your life. Sometimes you just want a place where you can take off the mask and just be really raw and real. 

You don’t have to manage it alone. You don’t have to bottle up your joy or your shame or anything else you’re feeling. Instead of being stuck in this place, you can learn to love and care for yourself and concentrate on the things in life you truly value.

That’s where Urban Wellness Comes in:

Urban Wellness is a multi-specialty counseling center. Every therapist who works here practices a different specialty and is trained to meet the unique needs of the people in our community. We strive to provide well-rounded care to all who live in our neighborhood. Each therapist tailors their approach to you and makes a point to meet you where you are in the healing process. We can find the counselor who is the best fit for you and your current concerns, and if not, we can refer you to another therapist in the community who can.

Things we help the LGBTQ+ community with in therapy:

If you are currently experiencing a severe mental illness, we recommend you seek outpatient services at a local program like Thresholds. If you are currently experiencing substance abuse or dependence, please see our other specialized service.

When You Seek Therapy at Urban Wellness:

Urban Wellness is here to provide you with a safe space and an LGBTQ affirming and competent counselor to help you navigate your own unique challenges. 

Our mission is to help people feel more connected to themselves. We believe everyone can have the life and the relationships they desire. It’s simply a matter of getting in touch with those desires and building the skills to make them become a reality. Our passion is helping community members build the connections they can count on in order to thrive.

Urban Wellness is the place for people to find deeper self-understand and self-compassion.

Perhaps you are a young adult who has just struck out on your own. You realize adulthood is not all you’d expected it to be and it’s much harder to live alone than you thought. You can’t help but feel isolated and like you’re drifting without a purpose. You’re trying to navigate adult life while trying to find your place in the LGBTQ community, but you just don’t know the first place to start. We have counselors on staff who specialize in working with emerging adults. Click here to learn more.

Sometimes, the traumatic experiences you think you’ve gotten over can have a lasting effect on the way you live your life. You find that since your traumatic event you’ve had trouble relating to your friends and loved ones, sleeping well at night, and feeling comfortable in public places. You know you’re a different person because of what you went through, but everything you’ve tried to get back to the person you used to be hasn’t worked. Here at Urban Wellness, we have therapists specifically trained to treat clients with trauma. When you schedule a session, you will start to feel like yourself again. Click here to learn more.
