How to find an LGBT+ therapist in Boston
How much does therapy for LGBT+ in Boston cost?

Does insurance in Boston cover LGBT+ issues?
While it is possible to find LGBT+ therapists who are in-network with insurances, note that in order to qualify for coverage, your therapist will need to diagnose you with a mental health condition such as anxiety or depression.
That said, many in-network, highly trained LGBT+ therapists in Boston have long waitlists, so it’s important to check their availability before reaching out. If a therapist seems like a particularly good fit, you may also consider asking to be placed on a waitlist.
What should I look for in a therapist for LGBT+ issues?
If you’re looking for help with a specific issue (e.g., anxiety, depression), check out the therapists’s education and experience to ensure they are directly related to whatever challenge or issues you’re facing. Ask the therapist(s) about their approach and what you can expect in sessions, so you can see whether a certain approach appeals to you.
As for credentials, therapists who work with you on LGBT+ issues may be social workers, counselors, psychologists, or psychiatrists. If you think you want or need medication, look for a psychiatrist or nurse practitioner.
