Why choose a gay therapist?
I am a proud gay male therapist. I’m married to my partner of whom makes life absolutely worth living; however, my happiness with my partner comes at a price. It comes with decades of enduring homophobia in varying degrees and in various circumstances. I’ve had to navigate those challenges myself and have gained more balance both as a multicultural gay man and as a therapist… but what does this mean for you?
It is important to consider the potential advantages of choosing a gay-identified therapist. Studies show that gay-identified therapists are rated as being significantly more helpful to gays and lesbians than male heterosexual therapists. Gay-identified therapists may have a greater understanding of issues related to sexuality, gender, gender expression, heterosexism, homophobia, and dealing with hate.
