Built around acceptance and accessibility, Pride Counseling is an online counseling platform for the LGBTQ community. We change the way people get help to conquer life's challenges.

Get help with common and uncommon gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender issues
Live chat or video call with you specialist, all online
Schedule meetings with your therapist at a time that works best for you
Talk to someone who understands whether you’re straight, gay, lesbian, pansexual, bi sexual, transexual, asexual, or transgendered
Talk only with licensed professionals - all of our counselors have a masters degrees 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 anyone can have convenient, discreet, and affordable access to professional help.

Our counselors 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 Masters Degree or a Doctorate Degree in their field. 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 counselors specialize in the LGBTQ community.

Many people avoid getting professional help because it can become extremely expensive. We want to make Pride Counseling easy and accessible to everyone, so we've created plans which are simple, predictable, risk-free, and affordable. Plans start as low as $35 per week.

If you accomplished your goals or if you found it to be no longer helpful for any reason, you can simply cancel the subscription. Canceling is easy and done online - there are no hoops to jump through.

Don’t settle if your counselor isn’t a good match - try again. Very expensive though.

At first I had a counselor that didn’t really work for me, but after I switched just once I was really happy with the counselor that I got matched with. I should have switched sooner. Don’t hesitate to switch if you think it might help. Also, this service is really really expensive. Don’t waste money on a counselor who isn’t working for you. There are financial accommodations but I don’t know exactly what accessing them entails, I just pay full price becuaee I assume I wouldn’t qualify but I have no idea what that process is like or what’s offered. I feel like the service I’m getting from my current counselor is definitely top quality and worth it, but even then, $260 a month is pretty steep to pay.

A bit more help and a bit more work. 🌻💕🏳️‍🌈🏡

I live with high anxiety and clinical depression. Why do I react to people the way that I do? I am an epileptic and a recovering-alcoholic (one year, two months and four days of day, I will stop counting). May be it’s a genetic predisposition for me to be and feel the way that I do, all these things place less responsibility on myself for my own care... it’s someone or something else’s fault.

I am so grateful for my in-person therapist, my medication(s) and creative outlets & friends and most importantly for Pride Counseling and my online counselor Michelle Pellin. This isn’t a service to utilize if you are in crisis. If you are in crisis there’s a hotline they recommend and if it’s really bad, please call 911.

These chats offer you fresh eyes that see you as a whole, unique person. You don’t have to pretend to be happy to make someone comfortable. You and your counselor may not agree on ever point, but keep making yourself be heard and like A.A., it works if you work it and please keep coming back!

I plan on sharing the insights and tools I’ve gathered with my a.p.r.n., and offline therapist and say, “this is where i AM at not where anyone thinks I should be and let’s start from here...”

Thank you Pride Counseling I am working hard, and it’s worth it... I am worth it. Let’s all let go of the stigma of mental illness and seeking help.

Love & Peace,

I have tried other apps out there, honestly spent money on what I thought was going to help me out. I was not really sure about this once I was getting ready to start and decided to give this online counseling another try. I am VERY glad that I did. I was matched with a counselor within an hour, had a great first conversation and have never had to wait more then a day for a response! Hands down one of my MUST HAVE apps on my devices for help whenever I need it or just to share a thought to discuss later in a non judgement room. Also I was very busy with work for a weekend, I had an email waiting for me in my inbox asking if everything was okay and if I was still comfortable with my counselor. I have to say I was impressed that they didn’t leave me behind even when I was to busy to realize that I had not responded in a few days! Thank you PC for everything so far!
