Middle School LGBTQ Support Group


Middle School 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: Adolescents, ages 11-13 who identify as LGBTQ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, genderqueer, non-binary, pansexual, questioning, and other identities along the spectrums of gender identity and sexual orientation). May consider younger participants based on developmental readiness.

What: A support group for individuals who identify as LGBTQ. Each week the group will focus on a specific topic related to identity development, including areas of social, emotional, and/or physical, and overall health.

When: This 8-week group will begin on Tuesday, July 7th, 2020 and end on Tuesday, August 25th, 2020 from 6:00-7:30 pm.

Where: Sentier Psychotherapy
670 Cleveland Ave. S.
St. Paul, MN 55116
(Highland Park neighborhood: Above Highgrove Dental; next to CorePower Yoga; across the street from Cecil's Deli).

Why: LGBTQ individuals are at increased risk of isolation, mental health issues, substance abuse and addiction, and certain types of trauma. Additionally, LGBTQ youth have limited access to adequate mental health care and supportive services. This group aims to provide the support that is often lacking for LGBTQ adolescents/tweens.

How: Please email Alyssa Haggerty at or call 763.913.8261 ext. 3, to schedule a group Intake session at least one week prior to the start date.

Therapist: Alyssa Haggerty, MSW, LGSW

Fees: Group cost is $40 for screening and per group session. Sliding fee available, inquire with therapist. Superbills are provided for all group members and are particularly helpful for those who would like to submit to HSA, flex accounts, or insurance providers for out-of-network reimbursement.
