Gay and lesbian persons have been frequently subjected to hurtful and negative judgments that can affect self image, increase fears and block creative energy. If you are feeling alone or depressed, recovering from a relationship or in an unhappy one, struggling with drug dependency or sexual issues, or unable to focus on work or career concerns, it can be very helpful to consider working with an LGBT or gay psychotherapist.
