Being gay offers a unique perspective on life and the world we live in.
Many gay people are open about their sexual orientation, but still struggle at times to completely accept themselves. Their brains chatter with judgments, self-consciousness, and questions of self-worth. Some seek relief through sex or substance use. Others cope by trying to achieve perfectionism in work or appearance.
I have worked with many members of the LGBT community to journey out of shame and end the cycle of avoidance and self-defeating behavior. Therapy can give you an opportunity to start accepting yourself fully.
