Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Mental Health

The GW Medical Faculty Associates Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences is committed to the comprehensive mental health services of the LGBT population. Specializing in humanistic and individualized care, we offer services for individuals ages 16 and up that not only address general psychiatric conditions (such as anxiety, depression, and bipolar), but also conditions specific to the LGBT population. Common issues that we address include:

  • Exploring one's sexual attractions, sexual behaviors, and emotional attachments 
  • "Coming out" to friends, family, and colleagues
  • Challenges overcoming stigma, experienced homophobia or bullying
  • Social anxiety
  • Dating and relationships
  • Sexual behaviors and dysfunction
  • Being diagnosed or living with HIV/AIDS
  • Family planning, including adoption and surrogacy
  • Addiction - including alcohol, drugs, gambling, and sex
  • Trauma (sexual, emotional, physical)
  • Gender identity and transitioning (including evaluations for surgical candidacy)
  • Integrating one's sexual identity into their cultural, ethnic or racial identity
