Providing mental health services to the LGBT community is a thriving niche market for many Clinicians. The LGBT community is widely under-represented with Clinicians providing quality and ethical mental health treatment. Providing these services often require additional training and consultation from professionals who have advanced training in LGBT studies and mental health issues.
In my practice, I provide individual, family, and couples counseling to LGBT individuals and families who present with a wide array of issues. I have provided individual consultation to other mental health providers to increase their clinical skills with this population.
In addition to training and consultation, it is important to target your market, called niche marketing. I have developed a E-Book specifically for mental health providers who are looking to specifically market to the LGBT population. In addition, I provide 1:1 consultation to professionals seeking individualized consultation via phone, Skype, and/or in person.
