Do you need support in understanding, accepting, or navigating your sexual orientation? It can be hard to embrace your identity if you are gay or lesbian, and even harder if you identify as bisexual, pansexual, queer, or otherwise. Sometimes the labels of sexual orientation get in the way of just understanding and listening to yourself.

If you aren’t sure of your sexual orientation or which genders you are attracted to, seeking therapy is a great step to take. Wherever you are located in Connecticut from Bridgeport to West Haven or even New Britain, or anywhere else nearby, Mental Health Match can help you easily find an experienced therapist or counselor who best meets your needs.

If you’re not sure whether you should seek treatment for sexual orientation issues and identities, we can help. Here are some signs indicating you could use the help of a trained professional:

  • You aren’t sure which genders you are attracted to.
  • You have internal turmoil between what you experience and what you want.
  • You are struggling to accept your sexual orientation.
  • You have experienced, or are currently experiencing, trauma related to your sexual orientation.
