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 New York from Albany to Yonkers or even Niagara Falls, or anywhere else nearby, Mental Health Match can help you easily find an experienced therapist or counselor who best meets your needs.
