Built around acceptance and accessibility, Pride Counseling is the online therapy platform for the LGBTQ+ community. We’re changing the way people get help.

Get help with common and uncommon gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender and queer/questioning issues
Live chat or video call with your specialist, all online
Judgement free therapy for all genders and sexualities
Schedule meetings with your therapist at a time that works best for you
Talk to someone who understands you whether you’re heterosexual, gay, lesbian, pansexual, bi sexual, transexual, asexual, intersex or transgender
Talk only with licensed professionals - all of our therapists have a Master’s degree at the minimum

Facing obstacles alone can be daunting. Support and guidance from a professional therapist has been shown to make big changes. Whether you are struggling with mental health issues, your identity, or just need someone to talk to, we want to make help accessible. We created Pride Counseling so that anyone can have convenient, discreet, and affordable access to professional help.

Our therapists are licensed, trained, experienced, and accredited psychologists (PhD/PsyD), marriage and family therapists (MFT), clinical social workers (LCSW), licensed professional counselors (LPC), or similar credentials. All of them have a Master’s Degree or a Doctorate Degree in their field and specialize in LGBTQ+ issues. They have been qualified and certified by their state professional board after successfully completing the necessary education, exams, training and practice. They all possess at least 3 years and 2,000 hours of hands-on experience. In addition to this, all our therapists specialize in LGBTQ+ specific issues.

I’ve found that the criteria for if you are determined to be ‘too sick to help with the app’ is a lot stricter in the pride version than it is in the regular app, which is...weird

Unsafe for transgender clients

My partner and I are transgender and my counselor couldn’t get our pronouns correct; I had to repeatedly remind her what our pronouns are, five times in a half hour, in our first session.

When she continued misgendering my partner and I, I politely asked if she is willing work on not misgendering her transgender clients. She responded by saying there’s other people she could be talking to instead of me, she then hung up on me while I was responding and immediately dropped me as a client.

Very disappointing to experience this kind of blatant transphobia while paying for an app that claims to support the transgender community :-(

Itll reject you

From what I’ve seen and experienced if you don’t have depressive or anxiety like problems it’ll reject giving you counselling, be warned, it’s not for sure you’re going to get in
