LGBTQ+ Therapy in Illinois

Affirming LGBTQ+ therapy for Chicagoans

As LGBTQ+ therapists in Illinois, we understand firsthand that the journey of self-discovery and pride can be challenging to navigate. We offer LGBTQ+ therapy in Illinois because we know the importance of having a trusted companion on this lifelong journey.

The shape of Illinois with rainbow flags

An Illinois LGBTQ+ therapist, psychologist Miranda Nadeau, Ph.D., is dedicated to creating welcoming spaces specifically tailored for queer and trans folks in Chicago, Springfield, Rockford, Peoria, Aurora, Champaign, Bloomington, Evanston, Decatur, and every community in between. As a regular visitor to Chicago, Dr. Nadeau is a close friend of the Prairie State and its queer communities.

We get the importance of meeting with an LGBTQ+ therapist who is 100% on board with who you are, how you love, and how you navigate the world. Our goal is to make you feel heard, validated, and supported in every facet of your life in Illinois.

Too often, queer folks experience barriers to affirming care, and no one wants to be judged, othered, or have to educate or explain themselves. While negotiating straight spaces like many therapy offices, you may have been misunderstood or harmed. In a therapy space carved out just for you, Illinois LGBTQ+ therapist Miranda Nadeau, Ph.D., is dedicated to creating inclusive and welcoming spaces where you can explore your concerns without fear.

We are proud to offer LGBTQ+ therapy across Illinois, serving the metro areas with therapy in Chicago, Springfield, Rockford, and Peoria, and all the cities in between.
