Find a Gay Therapist in NYC that offers LGBT Counseling!
Although lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning (LGBTQ) individuals share some universal issues, their particular concerns are unique. Many LGBTQ individuals feel more comfortable with a therapist who is both familiar with these issues and accepting, supportive and encouraging during treatment.
At myTherapyNYC, all of our therapists provide gay affirmative counseling. We share in the belief that there is nothing inherently wrong with being lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender. We provide a safe environment for all LGBTQ clients and are prepared to address the complexities facing this community.
Our therapists have extensive experience and training working with the community. During LGBT counseling, some of the challenges that we tend to focus on include:
- Relationships and Dating
- Living with HIV/AIDS
- Coming Out
- Sexual Compulsion
- Sexual/Gender Identity
- Substance Use/Addictions
- Intimacy Issues
- Dealing with Shame
- Internalized homophobia
- Internalized Transphobia
For some individuals, sexual orientation and identity issues may be the cause for depression, anxiety and other emotional stressors. We will be sure to address this in our work together. Others may wish to focus on other issues, such as trauma, but still work with an understanding, nonjudgmental therapist. Either way, we will work jointly with you to focus on your specific individual needs and life problems.
