Gender Issue Therapy
In today’s society there are contradictory trends around sexual identity acceptance. It can be difficult to find balance when you can’t accept who you are in the face of stressors such as social stigmatization or discrimination. As our sexual and gender identities emerge, it is not uncommon for some of us to struggle with and experience complex feelings and emotions such as fear, uncertainty or confusion. Individuals who are uncomfortable with their gender may face high levels of shame and guilt, fears of rejection and abandonment due to social stigma.
No matter who or how old you are, it is important to form a positive sense of sexual and gender identity for your mental well-being. A therapist can provide a nurturing and non-judgmental environment for you to explore your feelings and thoughts and ascertain confidence in who you are.
