Understanding Our Needs
It is important as a therapist to understand how to address issues that people with same sex attractions bring into therapy. Concerns such as; understanding the normal, common patterns in gay male and lesbian couples; searching for same sex relationships, building community support; "coming out" or remaining closeted at work, with family or friends; the need for premarital counseling before legally wedding; bisexuality and more.
Therapy can be intense. Spending time educating your therapist on the cultural differences between your life and mainstream heterosexual life can be burdensome. I have conducted LGBTQI support groups for over 20 years and have presented at national and regional professional conferences on this issue. Although I have worked with a diverse range of clients, my most important and compelling work has been with people who are facing these issues. Certified also as an Imago Couples Counselor, I teach same sex couples to identify and communicate their core needs to each other so that they create the relationship they have always longed for.
