Is your child / teen questioning their sexual identity? Looking for the right therapist to assist your child through this period is crucial. You need a therapist who is open and willing to go on this journey with your child without judgement or criticism. Providing an open accepting environment is key to working with a child / teen questioning their sexual identity. The right therapist needs to be familiar with the ever-changing scope of the LGBTQ world, coming out, internalized homophobia, depression, and self-destructive behaviors.
I specialize in working with children and teens, I am not a gay therapist but one who can provide a warm accepting environment to talk about dating, social skills, relationships, self-esteem, and issues stemming from questioning their identity. In addition, I can help facilitate communication between parents and their child regarding this topic that might not be a familiar conversation for most parents. I have worked with hundreds of teens struggling to find the right words to describe themselves, who needed a safe non-judgmental place to ask questions out loud and to find the answers within themselves.
