Gay, Lesbian and Bisexual Counseling
Are you or a loved one struggling with depression, anxiety, low self-worth or shame and guilt associated with your sexual orientation or sexual identity? Is your relationship struggling? If you are confused about your sexual orientation or experiencing a life crisis, stuck in unhealthy relationships, or caught up in behavioral addictions or unhealthy and self-destructive behaviors, psychotherapy can help.
Gay, lesbian and bisexual individuals often internalize the negative social stigmatism that society, family and religion has labeled and judged against them as wrong, taboo, sinful or even sick. Although the negative stigmatism around being gay is becoming less prominent in today’s more progressive culture, it has not been without the often lasting and devastating consequences to the individual psyche.
I offer psychotherapy for individuals, couples and families seeking therapy for gay, lesbian, bi, trans, or questioning issues and concerns in and around the Seattle, Washington area. My practice includes short-term and long-term psychotherapy that can help you and your loved ones navigate the difficult choices and challenges that must be addressed when coming out or when dealing with the long-term effects of repression, discrimination, homophobia, or abuse and trauma. Together we can safely address your concerns to begin the healing process and facilitate the life changes that you desire and deserve.
