SEXUALITY/SEXUAL IDENTITY/ROMANTIC ORIENTATION

Individuals exploring their sexuality, sexual identity, or romantic orientation often experience some of the following:

 

  • Struggling to define their sexual orientation or expression of their romantic orientation
  • Dealing with stigma related to sexual orientation/identity
  • Stress related to feeling discrimination or oppression as a minority
  • Concern about coming out to one’s friends and family
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Feeling isolated

 

Therapy can help you with self-discovery related to your sexuality or romantic orientation and process the changes occurring in your life. With insight into the psychological impacts of these changes, you can begin to sort through the confusion you may be feeling, overcome interpersonal challenges, and improve your self-understanding and self-compassion. Working with your therapist on coming out and/or working through such transitions can help you feel more authentically true to yourself and improve your overall quality of life and happiness.
