Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans*, Asexual, Intersex, Queer, Questioning, Labels labels labels. When will anyone just treat you like a person? You have issues just like everyone else and MANY of them have nothing to do with who you’re attracted to. What you want is somewhere that you know without a doubt you can talk about life with your partner and not be afraid that you’re being judged or treated differently.
While you wanted to be treated just like everyone else, there are some things about being queer that make you unique. Just like straight people, you need help making sense out of the mess around you by someone who understands the ways that your life is different from the rest of the population.
You want couples counseling that understands the unique needs of the queer couple and can address the common pitfalls you face.
You want someone who can hear and understand how your sexual identity and faith can co-exist even though you have been kicked out of a church or your own family.
You dont feel the “pride” in being gay and you want to work through the feelings honestly with someone who won’t condemn you for it.
You want a therapist who is able to help you obtain hormone replacement therapy so you can finally be yourself, no longer trapped in a body that does not feel like your own.
The needs of the LGBT* community are vast and unique.
You deserve the right kind of support.
