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.

Such a relief!

Straight up, I hate therapy, not because I think it’s a sign of weakness, or any of the stigma that people put on the work that people have to do to maintain and improve their mental health, but because I have a lot of difficulty expressing my emotions in front of someone face to face. Because of my anxiety around this, I rarely can make an appointment on time, and it just ends up being a wash of guilt. APP THERAPY IS BRILLIANT. I love the relative anonymity, although I feel very comfortable with my counselor (great match, even though I was worried when it took a couple days to happen). I love being able to reach out any time. This isn’t really 24/7 counseling, due to your counselors IRL personal and professional life. But, it’s the next best thing. Mine was upfront with her availability, so I am able to work in a live chat session at least once a week to make the program worthwhile. I can also shoot a text anytime something comes up I think is relevant and will get a response within a few days.

Overall, I can’t recommend this style enough. It’s not free. It doesn’t work with insurance, but it’s a less expensive option for people to get help, and that’s really important. Having access to LGBT friendly counselors is essential for this community, even if your identify or orientation has no impact to do with your day to day life.

Brilliant program, good app, and I’m grateful for it.

I needed this

Truly life changing, and WELL worth the money. I was skeptical about how much therapy could help me, and even more skeptical about this web based platform, but all I can say is that I am so happy I took the plunge and got it.

My therapist/counselor is amazing; she helped me just get in the right mindset with working towards change in my life, and always listened with such attention and care. I’ve learned so many practical, actionable things I can do every single day to change my mind frame (this is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy) and it’s worked wonders so far. At the very least I UNDERSTAND myself so much more, and can finally appreciate myself and then begin to help myself move towards a healthier me.

It’s nice knowing you have someone in your corner, but in your pocket instead haha. If you’ve been thinking about getting therapy for ANYTHING (right now currently working on a self esteem thing I’ve been half heartedly working on since childhood) I’d suggest giving it a go. It’ll only help!

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,
