Even as the world becomes more accepting, there are always pressures that come from “feeling different.” Not all family and friends are accepting of the gay and lesbian community, and the media can often make it feel as though your feelings and experiences are something to be ashamed of.
For years I’ve been working with the gay, lesbian, and transgender community in Long Island, helping those that are struggling with managing their feelings overcome their challenges and live happier, more fulfilling lives.
Working Through Issues With Sexual Preference
As a Long Island Therapist, I’ve worked with many LGBT individuals that struggle with not only their sexual preference – but also the traditional stresses that come from day to day life. I’m happy to work with you through any experience related to your sexual identity, including:
- Dealing with bullying and/or intolerance.
- Accepting your sexual preferences.
- Learning how to cope with the stresses of “coming out.”
- LGBT couples therapy and relationship help.
But I am also happy to work with you on any issues you may be feeling with stress, anxiety, depression, or other common emotional challenges that affect every member of the community. Everyone has their struggles, and when you are also a part of the LGBT community, there may also be additional challenges that you need to overcome. No matter the issue that’s affecting you, I want to have an opportunity to help you overcome it.
