Sometimes all you need to work through life’s challenges is someone to talk to.
Our peer counselors are here for you, supporting the NYC-area LGBTQ+ community with active listening, sharing from personal experience, and referrals to a variety of mental health resources.
Identity House is an all-volunteer community that provides counseling services to support and encourage LGBTQ+ adults who are working through issues around sexual orientation and gender identity & expression, including among other things alienation, relationships, and family.
Life isn’t always easy.
We help in three ways.
Walk-in Peer Counseling Center
No appointment needed—stop by during our weekly walk-in hours to talk with our peer counselors.
Issue-centered Support Groups
Led by our peer facilitators, groups help you work through shared challenges together over 8-10 weekly sessions.
Therapy Referrals and Resources
Our counselors can provide resource information or referrals to short-term counseling or professional therapists.
