Looking for a Gay Therapist in Culver City – Call Patrick Tully

There are many incredible therapists in Culver City and the surrounding Los Angeles area. But sometimes, it’s helpful to talk to someone that understands your experiences – someone that shares your background, your challenges, and your way of thinking.

As a gay therapist in Culver City, I see many patients in the LGBTQ+ community that desire a better understanding of self. While they may be struggling with conditions like anxiety and depression, they also know that their experience is unique in this world – different from the cis, straight men and their privileges. For anyone that prefers to talk to an LGBTQ therapist in Culver City, contact me today via my online form.

What I Can Help With

My goal as a therapist in Culver City is to *see* you. I want to know who you are and I want to make sure that you feel safe, cared for, and welcomed. I recognize the role that therapists played in my own acceptance of who I am and the growth that I’ve made as an individual. I want to be that support person for you. I can help you with LGBTQ affirmation. I can also help you address common conditions such as:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Creative Blocks
  • Work Stress
  • Couples Counseling

Many of my clients are from the LGBTQ community. But I also work with cis-women and cis-men that also feel more comfortable talking to a gay man than other therapists. I’m here to help you feel safe, heard, and respected. I also use a variety of evidence based strategies, including CBT, to help my clients in Culver City and Los Angeles receive the help and support they deserve.

Let’s Get Started – Call and Let’s Make A Connection

Therapy is science based and effective. But there’s also the importance of that initial connection between the therapist and the patient. The more you can trust me to help you, the more effective counseling will be. If you’re in need of a gay counselor in Culver City to help you navigate the challenges that you may face in life, please call me today for an introduction.

Business consulting is not uncommon and LGBTQIA+ Business Consulting consists of important factors to consider when running a business. We want to respect people as they truly are, and thank you, whether you are a part of the LGBTQ and gay community yourself or are an ally, you have made the right choice to read about consulting. Many businesses consult, but they speak about it too much rather than make their employees feel included in the continued effort of diversity, equity, and inclusion. There are also many models used by consultants where conversations can take place between employees and allow employees to be heard. This allows for productive communication to occur, where otherwise no communication would occur. It is so thrilling to see the change happen within a department! When someone just assumes an intention for so long and then they realize they have been assuming, it opens up the dialogue for productive change!

Eating Disorders in the Trans Community

We live in a world with intense social pressures to look, feel, and act in very specific ways. It is often these pressures (combined with trauma, anxiety, and other mental health struggles) that push people into developing eating disorders, like anorexia and bulimia. When we obsess over our body image, we often find that our reality changes and we create these ideals that are impossible to attain. This may lead us to skipping meals, reducing calories, or finding way to maintain the body weight that we think we need to be happy.

Eating disorders can affect anyone, of any sexuality or background. But they are more common in the LGBTQ+ community, and especially common in the trans community. That is why it is so important for trans men, trans women, and the people that love them to pay attention to the signs and symptoms of eating disorders in order to identify them early and help them receive the help they deserve.

Why Would Eating Disorders Be More Common in Trans Adults?

Trans people spend much of their lives realizing that they are presenting in the wrong body. They are often envisioning the way they were meant to look and feel. This hyperfocus on their appearance – both before and after transition – means that there is rarely a time when they are not thinking about their body image.

Similarly, post-transition there is also a pressure to feel like there has been a transformation. When someone is able to finally present as a woman, for example, they often feel eyes on them to look the way women are expected to look. This is all during a time when there are often traumas, stigmas, and other social issues that make the pressures even greater, all while taking hormone supplements that can lead to emotional changes.

Finally, people that have suffered through bullying, anxiety, trauma, and violence are also more likely to develop eating disorders – and we live in a world where this is an unfortunate reality for so many of the trans people we adore.

Psychotherapy for the Trans Community

Pre- and post-transition is often a time where trans youth and adults are thinking about their physical body and the way they appear. But it is important to remember now to forget that adapting to change and finding happiness also come from within. Therapy is immensely helpful as a way to find more contentment with yourself and your life, as you become more true to who. Licensed in California, Texas, and Florida, I am able to speak to anyone that needs to gain more control over their mental health, and I am local to the Los Angeles, Culver City, and Pasadena area for those that would prefer to work with someone close by.

Please contact me today if you feel that you’re struggling, and let’s start helping you take better control over your mental health.

 

Gay Couples Counseling in Los Angeles, Culver City, and Pasadena with Patrick Tully

Patrick Tully is an LGBTQ+ Friendly Therapist and Couples Counselor Offering Support for Gay and Lesbian Couples

We need human connection. When we find someone that we really understand – someone that sees us – it’s so meaningful and so special. But relationships can also be challenging. You may find that you’re disconnected, or that you’re not communicating correctly, or that you have anxiety about the commitment, trust, and so much more. Poly relationships and relationships that are open deserve just as much attention and respect from a competent therapist who cares.

As a gay therapist and couples and relationship counselor, I am here to talk to you about your relationship. I see relationships of various types, none that I label as “wrong,” and I understand how complex it can be to navigate the emotions of the relationship and how limited the resources are to help – especially for LGBTQ+ couples.

If you need couples counseling in Los Angeles, Pasadena, Culver City, or any of the nearby cities in the area, please contact me today. As a gay couples counselor, I am very understanding of LGBT couples, but I am also happy to accept couples of any kind, from any background. I would love to talk to you about your struggles and create a therapy plan to help.

Couples Therapy and Counseling in the LA Area

I accept all couples, no matter their sexuality, gender, or the type of relationship that they’re in. I have seen many straight-cis couples, but I also am fully comfortable with seeing gay, lesbian, and queer couples that are hoping to receive therapy and support from someone that is accepting and open to their backgrounds.

I am also fair. I recognize that both partners need a safe space to share and grow, and the way that I approach your care and growth as a couple is to make sure that all of you have a chance to be your truest selves and know that you’re in a safe space where you’ll be heard.
