Sad Look

ARE YOU LIVING IN A STATE OF SURVIVAL?

Are you struggling to connect with providers who get your background and understand your perspective from an affirmative stance? Have you been struggling to be your authentic self for fear of what could happen if you were to make that choice? Or having made the decision to be your authentic self, are you struggling with those around you accepting you as you are?


Living in this way can make one feel stuck in their life. 


Do you ever have thoughts like:
“I am not good enough.”

 “I am broken beyond repair.”

 “Why can’t I just be normal?”

Feeling like this, anxiety kicks in. You might not want to get out of bed and feeling a continuous unease that won’t leave you alone.

Happy Portrait

BUT THINGS DON'T HAVE TO BE THIS WAY...

You are not alone in your experience and therapy can help you feel better.

YOU CAN CHANGE YOUR LIFE 

Processing your life experiences of discrimination, oppression, and trauma due to your identity can help you take back the narrative of your life and empower you to move forward without shame or anxiety. 


Reaching out for support and receiving it, can remind you of the value you bring to this world and the power of connection with those who are affirmative and see you for the beautiful person you were born to be. 

THERE IS ALWAYS HOPE


Attending therapy to help address these feelings, emotions, and experiences can help decrease potential negative events moving forward in your future. An affirmative therapist can provide a safe, comfortable space to explore your life and goals. 

Therapy can help you by: 

- Decreasing Anxiety

- Increasing Emotional Regulation

- Navigating Queer Relational Dynamics 

- Building Communication Skills

- Building Conflict Resolution Skills

- Internalized Homophobia Recovery

- Building Self Esteem

- Trauma Processing and Recovery

- Minority Stress Processing

- Building Boundaries

AT GROUNDED CONNECTIONS COUNSELING, INC.,
WE SPECIALIZE IN WORKING WITH THE LGBTQIA+ COMMUNITY

We are a psychotherapy group practice dedicated to minority-identified communities that provides affirmative, culturally competent mental health counseling.


Our affirmative, trans/GNC and queer-informed therapists have helped many clients work through issues related to their coming out and/or transitioning gender identities and couple and relational struggles.


We strive to help create spaces that promote self exploration without judgment or bias to ensure clients feel they are able to decide who they are on their own terms.


We can match you with a therapist who you feel comfortable with, who can guide you, and ensure your path to wellness.

WHY CHOOSE GROUNDED CONNECTIONS COUNSELING, INC.?


YOUR EXPERIENCE. OUR EXPERIENCE

Our practice is made up of skilled clinicians, that provide culturally affirmative care and are able to relate to our clients lived experiences on a personal level.


NO WAITLIST

With a group of clinicians you are able to start your healing quicker and start feeling relief much sooner.


QUALITY SERVICE

At our practice, clinicians receive regular supervision of their work and treatment they are providing. In most cases with solo practitioners, no one is there to check the quality of service that clinician may be providing.


IN PERSON & ONLINE

We provide telehealth throughout California as well as in person services in our office in Irvine, CA.


PERSONAL FEEL

Unlike big corporate companies, like Betterhelp or Talkspace, small group practices such as ours, have the ability to connect with you one on one and receive the personalized care you deserve, while still providing you with a range of clinicians to choose from, so that it is a good fit from the start!
