A New Time for Gay and Lesbian Persons: While political change creates advances and setbacks for sure, this can still be a new, exciting time for LGBT persons.
The public perception and acceptance of gay and lesbian relationships and individual worth is changing.
This time, now, is historic. It is an opportunity to explore, redefine and deepen personal goals, desires, relationships … to become even clearer and more confident about your personal and professional identity.
Psychotherapy can definitely play a positive role. Counseling is an opportunity—in a safe and confidential setting—to carefully explore fears, problems and hopes, to gain more understanding and the strength and power to accept life’s presenting issues, and to grow.
Psychotherapy does work. An experienced psychotherapist is one who is trained to listen well, keep boundaries, make suggestions when appropriate, provide information and give you encouragement.
