Some lesbian issues may be directly related to being lesbian.
These could include:
-Coming out personally and professionally
-Exploring your sexual identity
-Overcoming shame about romantic and sexual feelings
-Fear of being discovered even in situations where it’s safe to be out
-Getting tired of feeling like you have to overcompensate and work harder and
be perfectionistic to be accepted
-Not being able to tell family/ dealing with prejudice in your family
-Dealing with prejudice in your culture or religion
-Dealing with trauma, bullying, discrimination, patriarchy, misogyny
-Dealing with your own internalized homophobia
-Jealousy over heterosexual privilege
-Fear of having a profession where you minimize your personal life in fear of losing your position.
For others, it can also be a safe place to work out other issues that you are dealing with in life. Either way, therapy can provide a safe and confidential place to share the burden, help you clarify your thinking and put you in a place to make better choices.
Therapy can provide you with help to strengthen your identity as an individual or couple. It can also improve your communication and intimacy so you can create the changes you want in your relationship.
I have worked with the LGBTQ+ community for over 25 years. My goal is to provide a safe space where you can identify and integrate solutions that work best for you.
