LGBTQIA+ Therapy

Dr. Corinne Votaw Freer

I’m Corinne, a licensed psychologist and a fervent LGBTQIA+ affirming therapist. As a member of the LGBTQIA+ community (LQI), I possess an intrinsic understanding of the challenges and lived experiences of the individuals I work with. I advocate for the importance of connecting with a therapist who embodies our community’s perspectives, believing that this alignment is crucial for effective therapeutic outcomes. These connections foster stronger bonds and minimize the potential for bias or misunderstandings that might arise with cisgender/heterosexual providers.

Through my PSYPACT license, I provide accessible and affirming mental health care to individuals in areas with limited LGBTQIA+ friendly services. My extensive experience at various LGBTQIA+ centers includes providing affirming care, leading group therapy, and managing community outreach initiatives. This background equips me with the empathy and insight necessary to support a diverse client base effectively.

If you’re searching for a therapist who doesn’t just understand but also shares the experiences of the LGBTQIA+ community, I encourage you to schedule a session with me. Together, we can explore your path to healing and self-discovery in a supportive and understanding environment.

LGBTQIA+ Affirming Treatment From An LQI Provider

There is a notable lack of mental health professionals who are part of the LGBTQIA+ community and understand that therapy involves more than just issues related to sexual orientation or gender identity.

Finding a therapist can be challenging, and concerns about their understanding, supportiveness, and safety may not be clear until after a few sessions. Biases often appear subtly, such as through microaggressions or misgendering. Having worked in both progressive and conservative regions, I am well-acquainted with the challenges our community faces and the increasing threats to our rights. My goal is to build trust with you, ensuring a therapy environment where you feel safe, accepted, and validated.

Common Concerns I Work With

My clients seek support for a range of issues, including depression, anxiety, past trauma, or social challenges. Whether you're dealing with oppressive systems, contemplating transitioning, or simply striving to overcome personal obstacles, I am here to provide guidance and support.

My Experience

As a Licensed Psychologist in Colorado (PSY6298), my background includes extensive work in LGBTQIA+ centers across the nation's most affirming regions. I have supported hundreds of individuals, couples, and polypods, many of whom were navigating their transition journey. As a queer therapist, I prioritize understanding and safety in every session, ensuring a supportive and affirming therapeutic experience.
