Stigmatization associated with lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender (LGBT) identity may contribute to people avoiding disclosure of their sexual or gender minority status to psychotherapists. This can be the case even when the issues that brought them into therapy are related to experiences associated with this identity. LGBT individuals who have served in the military may have had additional stigmatizing or traumatizing experiences that may further contribute to a reluctance to disclose an LGBT identity. This chapter focuses on practical tips for therapists who want to create a welcoming, affirming clinic environment for LGBT service members and veterans to feel comfortable talking about their lives in the treatment milieu.
