Therapy for Adults in Ottawa Centretown



Race, class, and sexual orientation/identity issues can cause confusion, guilt, and anxiety. You might also experience:

  • depressed mood
  • low interest in normal life activities at work, school, or with friends
  • feelings of shame and/or worthlessness
  • hiding aspects of yourself or your life from significant others
  • expectations from yourself and others to behave in ways that feel incongruent or untrue to who you really are

Everyone deserves to feel accepted and loved for who we really are. Prejudice and social convention can have a huge impact on our sense of belonging and worth in the world. Counselling and psychotherapy can help you to:

  • find and engage in social groups that support you
  • reduce the frequency and intensity of symptoms
  • improve emotional and psychological functioning
  • share who you are with others
  • increase your sense of closeness and importance in relationships
