LGBTQ Support Group for Young Adults

Young Adult LGBTQ Support Group

At this time, some of our groups are available virtually through secure video conferencing. Other groups are suspended for the time being until we are able to meet in person again. Please see the specific group pages or contact for more information.

Who: Young adults, ages 18-25, who identify as LGBTQ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, genderqueer, non-binary, pansexual, and other identities along the spectrums of gender identity and sexual orientation).

What: A group for LGBTQ identified and questioning folks. Group members will have a safe space to explore their identities, create community, and just be themselves. Group topics are: gender and sexuality, healthy relationships, coming out, identity in the workplace, and other topics that group decides upon.

When: TBD

Group is 10 weeks in length. At the end of the 10 week group, members have the option to be done with the group or register for another 10 weeks. Ongoing enrollment can continue on an open-ended basis, so long as therapist and client agree to continued enrollment.

Where: Sentier Psychotherapy, centrally located in Highland Park, St. Paul

Why: To build community and decrease stigma. LGBTQ individuals are at increased risk of mental health issues, substance abuse and addiction, and certain types of trauma. There is often limited access to adequate mental health care and supportive services. This group aims to provide the support that is often lacking for young people in the LGBTQ community.

How: Please email Sarah Souder Johnson at or call 763.913.8261 to express interest and/or schedule a group Intake session at least one week prior to the start date. Please leave your voicemail for Sarah who will coordinate the Intake scheduling.

Therapist: Ashley Groshek, LMFT and Jenga the Facility Dog

Fees: Group is $40 per session; sliding fee is also available. Please inquire with Ashley in email or during Intake session. Receipts are provided for all clients and are particularly helpful for those who would like to submit to HSA, flex accounts, or insurance providers for out-of-network reimbursement.
