LGBTQIA+ Counseling Services and Programming

Coordinator of LGBTQIA+ Counseling Services and Programming:
Kelsey Moran, Psy.D.
she | they

I am excited and honored to pioneer the coordinator position for LGBTQIA+ Counseling Services and Programming at Holy Cross. Working with and advocating for students who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, queer/questioning, intersex, asexual/aromantic, and anywhere else under the rainbow is profoundly meaningful, both personally and professionally. I see you, I stand with you, and I am here to support you.

My coordinator role means that I am available to provide professional and clinical expertise on mental health concerns that impact members of the LGBTQIA+ community through therapy, outreach, and consultation. I welcome the opportunity to engage in dialogues about any and all aspects of LGBTQIA+ identities and experiences. Much of my work with students focuses on helping them understand themselves more authentically, addressing the difficulties that the outside world often presents to them, and celebrating them for being themselves. I also co-facilitate a weekly LGBTQIA+ support group and a monthly TGNC+ (trans and gender non-conforming+) support group with Meg Fox-Kelly from the Chaplains' Office. We aim to help students connect with and support one another, share their experiences, and foster a sense of community.

My coordinator role does not mean that I am the only therapist who can or does work with members of the LGBTQIA+ community, although individuals may choose to work with me because my queer identities involve me in the community on a personal level. All of the therapists in the Counseling Center are trained in and provide affirmative therapy to all members of the LGBTQIA+ community.

 

How to Contact Me 

To schedule an individual psychotherapy appointment with me or one of my colleagues in the Counseling Center, please call 508-793-3363 during business hours.

For more information about either the LGBTQIA+ or TGNC+ support groups, please email me at kmoran@holycross.edu or Meg Fox-Kelly at mfox@holycross.edu.

Created in 2018 by David Quasar

This pride flag was created in 2018 to raise awareness for black and brown Queer bodies

and people who lost their life to aids.  It also incorporates the Transgender Pride flag colors to 

demonstrate solidarity with the trans community and the original meaning behind the Pride flag

as it was based off the Stonewall Riots in 1969 in response to Police brutality against Black and Brown

Trans and Queer LGBTQ2SIA+ community members.
